Brittany grew up in Corning, NY with a passion for nutrition and health that she had always enjoyed as a hobby but never imagined in the context of a career path. Brittany's love for science led her to pursue her bachelor’s degree in Biology at Cornell University. During her senior year she was inspired to complete a minor in nutrition after discovering the power of pairing her science background with nutrition. Post-graduation, she worked in two research labs - one at Cornell University and the other at the University of Notre Dame - all the while searching for an avenue into community nutrition. Brittany is excited to be a part of the Cornell Cooperative Extension team which presented her with the perfect opportunity to pursue a research-based nutrition career. Outside of work, Brittany enjoys going on bike rides with her husband, taking walks with their two German Shepherds, being a part of church community, and doing creative projects.
