Bio

Brittany has been with the Career Center team since June 2016. Upon graduation from Florida State University, Brittany spent two years working in human resources administration, recruiting, hiring, and training. Through this experience she developed an interest in higher education and career development. She then acquired a graduate assistantship in the University of Tennessee’s Center for Career Development and completed a master’s program in College Student Personnel.

Brittany is passionate about creating bridges between employers and academic colleges, and facilitating employer and student connections. She believes strongly that the role of the Career Center is not just about helping students land their first job - it’s about partnering cross-functionally with campus partners to assist in integrating career development into curriculum and programming from orientation to graduation. 

Additionally, Brittany manages the Career Development Internship program and serves as the Career Center liaison to the Disability Resource Center.
