Hi! I’m Brittany. My family consists of my fiancé, our 8-year-old son, Breken, and our giant dog, Charlie. As a family, we love doing simple things together like playing catch the backyard, fishing, and taking evening walks. My son loves to explore and get dirty, so you can often find us hiking and finding creeks to splash in.
I work at Big Brothers Big Sisters of East Central Ohio as a Mentoring Specialist, and I love what I do because I get to interact with children on a daily basis. It is more than just a job to me because I get to see children finding their identities, accomplishing goals, and growing into amazing people. I am also a “Big” myself. I have a 12-year-old “Little Sister” who is incredibly smart and sassy, and she is one of my best friends.
Aside from working and being with my family, I love to read and write. When I have no other responsibilities, I am almost always in a bubble bath with a new book. I became interested in writing for Newsymom because becoming a mother changed my life in the best way, and I want to share my stories with others. I love that as mothers, we all have unique experiences, but we are all able to connect through our challenges, triumphs, and joys in parenthood.
