Brittney was born and raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico. She realized from a very young age that she loves animals and wanted to be a voice for those that have none. This spurred her into pursuing a career in the veterinary field. After high school Brittney attended the University of New Mexico where she graduated with a Bachelor’s in Biology. She soon realized she had a passion for wildlife rehab and went on to complete a Wildlife Rehabilitation Certificate. After, she volunteered at Wildlife Rescue of New Mexico for one year until she became part of the NWAC in March of 2014.
Brittney finds great joy in loving each and every animal that comes into the clinic, big or small, furry or feathery. She especially enjoys interacting with the reptilian creatures we see.
Outside of the NWAC family, she lives with her adventurous and fun loving boyfriend, their fluffy kitty named T-Spoon, and their yellow-scaled Banana Ball Python named Naners. She enjoys traveling, outdoor activities, health/fitness, and teaching fourth graders at bible study. <3
