Aside from loving museums in general and working with great colleagues, Brittany loves that working at The Columbus Museum puts her in tune with the community. The Fort Benning transplant says working at the Museum has allowed her to engage with the community in ways that she wouldn't have been able to otherwise. In her spare time, she loves to go to FAMU Rattler football games, spend time with family, and visit every museum she can!
