Brittani grew up in Montana’s Bitterroot Valley just south of Missoula. She learned a respect and passion for wildlife and conservation from her grandfather, an avid traditional bowhunter. Brittani grew up hunting and fishing around western Montana and decided she wanted to turn her passion for wildlife into her career. She earned a bachelor’s degree in wildlife biology from the University of Montana and a master’s degree in rangeland management from Montana State University. After gaining conservation experience in multiple states, Brittani and her husband decided to move back to the Bitterroot to be with family and raise their daughter, who was born in 2021. They enjoy everything grizzly country has to offer and look forward to raising their daughter in Montana.
