Her rich background in admissions and college counseling as well as her ability to foster connections serves her well in guiding both families and institutions.

Learn more about Brittany and how she feels about joining the Bridges team:

I am thrilled to be joining Bridges Educational Consulting as the Director of Institutional Partnerships! Growing up, I had the mindset that access to education was the key to building the kind of life you wanted. As a first-generation, low-income Chicana from Southern California, this was a truth that I felt deeply and one I still do to this day. 

I joined the Bridges team because for the first time I could see how all of my intersecting interests could align under a mission-driven institution led by incredible women of color who are renowned in the field of admissions and enrollment management. For me, the role of Director of Institutional Partnerships is an opportunity to engage directly with the core of what makes admissions and enrollment management so special. Building connections with my colleagues in admissions on behalf of students, families and organizations makes the entire process more accessible. When higher education professionals have someone on the ground who has a pulse on what the needs of students are, it makes everyone better at what they do. That’s where I come in. I see myself as a bridge between the colleges and universities and those who seek to better understand how to get to that side of the bridge. 

It’s not just students who benefit from learning about this process! Teachers, administrators, college admissions professionals, parents, siblings… everyone can benefit from learning more about this often-daunting journey we call college admissions. How can we engage with this process better so that students thrive and universities and colleges flourish? This is my sweet spot. I love learning and I love teaching others. Being a member of the Bridges team allows me to connect with students, families, teachers, educators, and admissions professionals – all who are looking to better themselves and this process so that more students have access to higher education. 

As I’ve grown in my career, I’ve realized the importance of my values and to be in alignment with an organization that fosters those values. For me, Bridges Educational Consulting and its philanthropic arm, Shero’s Rise, is, as we say in college admissions, a perfect fit!
