Up Close

Brittany enjoys running and playing with her standard poodle, Thatcher. She also likes traveling and once had the opportunity to meet the Iron Lady while interning at the Institute of Economic Affairs in London, England.  After summer trips to a dude ranch, Brittany thinks if she had not gone to law school she could spend her days as a cowgirl riding horses in Colorado.
