When Brittni finished graduate school, her first job was working with male and female parolees transitioning from prison. It was during this time that her passion for second chances was ignited; she saw first-hand the power of belief and encouragement to transform lives. We all need hope and we all need second chances. This is a life motto held deeply by Brittni.
Outside of Rock, Brittni fulfills the role of Lead Pastor at her home church, enjoys spending time with her family, reading, crafting, and doing anything involved with the outdoors: going to the beach, shelling, or walking/running. Brittni is equally passionate about financial freedom through the program of Financial Peace University by Dave Ramsey. She can be found implementing these tools in her daily life; as well as, encouraging her clients to pursue financial peace through positive financial management strategies.

Favorite Quote/Life Motto:
“To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully around with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable.” –CS Lewis
