How Brittany Got Here

At 12 years old, Brittany decided she wanted to be a magazine writer. After earning her bachelor's and master's degrees from Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism, she worked at Men's Health, Prevention, Women's Health, Shape, and Greatist.

Then, with the changing journalism and health landscape, she wanted to strengthen her content marketing skills. So she joined I Will Teach You to Be Rich (yes, that's the name) to launch GrowthLab.com.

After a year, she decided, “Why pigeon-hole myself?” Wanting to devise and manage editorial strategies, do content marketing, edit, write, and be open to other opportunities, she started her own business. And—given that a repeat client describes her to others as “a Swiss Army knife”—she thinks she's avoided the pigeon hole.

When she's not working too much, she enjoys yoga, strength training, and other workouts; cooking vegan meals; traveling to places where she can hike and lay in the sun (wearing SPF, of course); and hitting NYC bars for scotch, craft cocktails, and earthy Italian red wine.
