Originally from southwest Michigan, specifically Niles, Brittney is now happily settled in the “up north” region, which she calls her current home.
During her time at Ferris State University, she pursued a degree in Television Digital Media Production while also being an active member of the varsity softball team, proudly cheering for the Dawgs.
Following her graduation, Brittney kickstarted her career in news by working as a production assistant at WOOD-TV in Grand Rapids. However, in November 2014, she decided to take a significant step forward in her career and moved to Traverse City to become the morning producer for 7&4 News Today.
Brittney’s passion for producing led her to excel, and she soon transitioned to a night position, taking charge of the 6:00 & 11:00 p.m. news broadcasts. However, after almost four years working behind the scenes, she felt the urge to explore a new side of her profession.
In August 2018, she made a bold move and embraced the role of a multimedia journalist, thriving in her new “one [wo]man band” position. As a reporter, Brittney began covering a wide range of stories, starting with the largest national guard exercise in the United States, Exercise Northern Strike at Camp Grayling. Her dedication took her even further, as she joined the U.S. Coast Guard Air Station Traverse City to witness and report on their urban environment flood rescues.
Brittney’s approach to storytelling is driven by her desire to offer a unique perspective, hold individuals accountable, and make a positive impact on people’s lives through her reports.
Beyond her work in the newsroom, Brittney can be found exploring the scenic trails of northern Michigan or enjoying live music events at local breweries.
