Brittany comes from a family of athletes. At age 9, Brittany showed her passion for working out through gymnastics where she was enrolled at Gymnastics School in Eastern Connecticut.
By the time she was 17 years old, she held the Level 10 title under her name and was contending on the Varsity Cheerleading and Track team and also placed First Team All-State during her entire gymnastics high school career. She then received a scholarship for the sport at the University of Bridgeport. She also competed in the NCAA Gymnastics Collegiate World.
How she got started in Bodybuilding
After graduating college, Brittany was still unsure of what it is she wants to do. She was feeling lost after a breakup and had too many emotions to handle on her plate. It was in October 2008 when her life took a different turn. Someone recommended for her to give fitness competitions a try. She started focusing all her energy into living a healthier lifestyle. She learned how to sculpt her body, eat right and walk and pose for the stage. Brittany has never looked back since then.
On April 2010, she competed in her second Fitness Show where she got her pro card in Fitness Modeling with the WBFF.
“Fitness became my new outlet and I loved every part of it. Now I’m a WBFF Pro and a sponsored athlete. I think it’s fair to say I’m over that breakup.”

The sensation of triumph in reaching her goals along with the love and support she receives from loved ones and her fans are what drives this woman. Her goal is to improve every single year. Brittany wants to reach out to as many people in need and help make a difference in their lives.
