was raised in San Diego, California, and Anderson, Indiana. After high school,
she moved to Colorado and worked as a front desk clerk and then as a customer
service representative. She quickly realized that without a college degree her
career options were extremely limited.
To open up more job opportunities, she
decided to enroll at Kaplan University to pursue her bachelor’s degree.
Before enrolling, Brittany already had a schedule that was
“I looked online and decided that I needed something that
was flexible because I work full-time and take care of my daughter,” she said.
After making the decision to pursue her bachelor’s degree in legal studies, Brittany enrolled with Kaplan University and fell in love. Shortly
after beginning this 4-year journey, she secured a job as a legal assistant
with the Fifth Judicial District Attorney’s Office.
Her positive experience led to her success as a student. “I loved the
classes and I worked full-time at the district attorney's office. And then I
would do my classes and homework and take care of my daughter afterwards. So
the teachers were very understanding when things came up and I was able to
accomplish it, luckily,” Brittany said.
Brittany graduated from Kaplan University with a bachelor’s degree
in legal studies in June 2016.
“I’ve had a lot of obstacles throughout my life, challenges
and struggles, and it’s huge to know that I was able to accomplish something
that was such a big deal. It will pay off in the long run and I feel really
good for myself and for my daughter knowing that I was able to complete my

been my main supporter. Anytime there were moments of doubt or obstacles along
the way she was the one who would say, ‘You can do it, mom. You got this.’ She
says, ‘Don't quit.’ She says, ‘Never give up’ is her favorite saying.”
Currently, Brittany works as a medical malpractice legal
assistant for the law firm Burg Simpson Eldredge Hersh & Jardine, P.C., and
plans to attend law school.
“The next step will be law school, so I will take the LSAT
in December and then apply for law school the beginning of next year. I love
the legal field and I am really excited to pursue it further.”
Brittany credits Kaplan University for getting her to where
she is now.
“I think that my education is huge. I couldn't go to law
school without acquiring my bachelor's degree, so there are steps in the
education process and I have now completed one of the big steps, thanks to
She added, “I actually feel like I have a head start
in getting into law school because of everything I learned at Kaplan [University].”
