Brittany has always been an animal enthusiast and worked on several horse farms in East Longmeadow, Massachusetts where she grew up. In high school, she and her mother moved to a small farm in a nearby rural town where she acquired many farm animals. Knowing that she wanted to be a veterinarian, she attended the University of Massachusetts Amherst and graduated with a bachelor’s of science in Pre-veterinary medicine. During college Brittany decided to try a new equestrian sport and joined the UMass Polo team. From there Brittany attended and received her doctorate from the University of Illinois School of Veterinary Medicine. During her free time, she enjoys all outdoor activities, live music, good food, the beach and spending time with family, friends and her little dog Romeo.
