After spending time as a strategic communications consultant in Washington, D.C., Brittany returned to Pennsylvania to join the TMF team in July 2013. When Brittany was growing up, both of Brittany’s parents worked in the non-profit world, which fueled to her desire to work in an environment where she can make an impact. Brittany completed multiple communication and public relations internships with non-profits in the Greater Philadelphia region during her college career, and jumped on the opportunity to join the TMF team as the Marketing and Communications Manager. Even though she never met Travis, Brendan, or Janet, she is excited to be part of the team that is carrying on their legacies. She is committed to sharing Travis’ and Brendan’s stories and spreading the “If Not Me, Then Who…” message to inspire young people to selflessly serve in their communities and to take the initiative to be the change they want to see in the world.
Brittany is responsible for implementation of the fiscal year marketing and communications plan. She also manages the Foundation’s website, as well as all of the Foundation’s social media platforms, including Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn and Instagram. Brittany also oversees the development of the Foundation’s newsletter and other publications. Brittany’s other responsibilities include media relations, special events communications, speech writing, photography, and special projects. Prior to joining the TMF team, Brittany worked as a strategic communications consultant for Booz Allen Hamilton. She also completed five communications and public relations internships with non-profits during her college career.
Brittany graduated from Penn State University in 2012 and “bleeds blue and white.” She received B.A. degrees in Public Relations and Communication Arts and Sciences and minored in Spanish. She sat in the front row of every Penn State home football game her freshman year, and even went to the Rose Bowl in 2009 to support her Nittany Lions. She eventually gave up the front row seats in favor of tailgating, but never missed a game during her four years in Happy Valley despite sub-zero temperatures, sleet and snow. Brittany grew up in Downingtown, PA and enjoys spending more time with her family now that she is back in the state.
