Afterschool Site Coordinator (J.J. Pickle)

Brittney arrived in Austin in summer of 2015. She attended Azusa Pacific University in Azusa, California before moving to Anchorage, Alaska where she graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Studies from Alaska Pacific University. Her interest in working with children and serving her community grew after working as a teacher’s assistant and volunteering for five years in the youth ministry at her church. Her desire to serve others also lead her to work as a case manager for the non-profit Foundation for the Homeless, where she learned how to respond to some of the challenges that exist in the local community.

Brittney’s lifelong goal is to know and love God and to share His love with others. She is excited to work at Side by Side Kids as J.J. Pickle’s new Site Coordinator and to see God’s love make a difference in people’s lives.

In her free time, she is likely to be found reading a good book, attending various church small groups, doing yoga, hiking, or enjoying time with her family and friends.
