Brittany grew up in Portland, a few blocks away from the new Rockwood office. She went to Parkrose High School and was in the class of 2009. Afterwards, she attended the UO and majored in psychology and graduated in 2013. She appreciates the relationships most at Friends of the Children—Portland. She loves the relationship that she has with the youth, their families, and the other program staff. Many times her job doesn't feel like a job because she's simply making plans with her friends. Outside of work she enjoys spending time annoying her husband, hanging out with the dogs, reading, and getting caught up on her favorite TV shows.
