Brittany is a physical therapy student (2021), pursuing a minor in computer science. She has been interested in STEM since she enrolled in a pre-engineering high school. Now she enjoys being able to continue to be involved with technology and engineering even though she chose not to major in either of those particular fields.

Brittany is involved with preparing for and helping out during field trips as well as doing research about new activities that the Center could implement. Outside of the Center, she enjoys programming (but at a very basic level right now) and doing anything involving crafting and creativity. She is especially excited about the emerging concept of STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math).
