Up Close

Brittany enjoys running and spending time with her family.  She is also an avid traveler and once had the opportunity to meet the Iron Lady, Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, while interning at the Institute of Economic Affairs in London, England.  Brittany and her husband Andrew love the great outdoors and frequently take their two standard poodles – Thatcher and Reagan – along with them for their adventures.  Between church activities, work, outdoor fun, and quality time with family and friends, the Hopper family is always on the go.
