Throughout her educational pursuits, she transitioned from overseeing substance abuse research studies at UCLA to assuming responsibilities for studies and student instruction at the New York State Psychiatric Institute.Her dedication to learning led her to achieve further milestones, including a Bachelor’s and later a Master’s degree in Nursing from Columbia University. Brittany’s commitment extended into her roles as a faculty member at Columbia and Einstein Universities. Eventually, she relocated to Colorado, where she currently offers care to acute clients while also guiding and mentoring Nurse Practitioner students.
