Brittany has embraced her personal mission of treating the entire patient and not just their disease or diagnosis. This commitment has underscored her professional education and career path. Brittany has developed skills that have led to best practices in dementia, memory loss, senior care, end of life care, and pediatric nursing, care delivery, and quality metrics. She is now focused on developing consistent clinical practices, policies, and procedures for the emerging Palliative Care service delivery industry. She incorporates compliance and patient advocacy concepts which have evolved as her signature strengths, contributing to improved care for patients and families. She is a self-starter who is always willing to go the extra mile for patients, families, and colleagues.
Brittany is currently the Palliative Care Program Manager for Snowline, the premier chronic, serious illness, and end of life care provider for Sacremento, California and the surrounding region. Snowline is Joint Commission accredited and was established as a nonprofit service provider in 1979. Prior to her military-related move to California, Brittany established herself at a non-profit hospice and palliative care agency in Colorado. Brittany was instrumental in the development of the agency’s hospice and palliative pediatric program, representing the organization with children’s hospitals in Denver and Colorado Springs. She led the clinical response to two state surveys in 2017 and 2018, and ensured the agency met and exceeded correction plans. Before her move west, she served as a Director of Quality Engagement for an organization specialized in Dementia care for five years.
Brittany became an LVN in 2012 and an RN in 2014. She received her bachelor’s degree in nursing from Bemidji State University in Minnesota in 2016. She is pursuing a master’s degree in Palliative Care through The University of Colorado – Denver starting in the fall of 2020.
