Brittanie was born in Dallas and raised in Mesquite, Texas, where she attended Mesquite (old) High School. While in high school, she ran for the track team and, at one point, was a hopeful for the U.S. Olympic Team. However, Brittanie’s desire to be the first in her family to attend and graduate from college outweighed all other ambitions.
Brittanie attended Prairie View A&M University, where she became a founding member of the Student Ambassadors Organization, which provided students with professional networking opportunities throughout the community and the State of Texas. Brittanie also served as President of the Alpha Phi Sigma Criminal Justice Honor Society and worked as an assistant to the Dean of Criminal Justice—all while graduating a year early with honors.
After graduating from Prairie View A&M University, Brittanie became a probation officer (community supervision) for Harris County. This experience profoundly impacted Brittanie and ignited her passion for the law; ultimately, driving her to attend Texas Southern University – Thurgood Marshall School of Law in Houston. During law school, Brittanie was an Associate Editor for the Thurgood Marshall Law Journal, a Member of the Black Law Students Association, and a Member of the Houston Young Lawyers Association.
When Brittanie is not fighting for justice on behalf of her clients, she enjoys spending time with her two dogs Paris (Doberman) and Bella (miniature Schnauzer).
