Brittany has been a dominant force in local and international tennis circuits since she picked up a racket at 16 years old. Now 27, she is a relentless competitor, who has discovered that focusing on her game also helps with her sensory and visual issues.

In 2015, Brittany brought home the gold in singles and doubles tennis at the INAS World Tennis Championships and Special Olympics Florida State Championship. In July 2016, Brittany competed in the OrlandoUnited Double Tennis Open as a part of a Unified pair. Not only did she and her partner win gold, she was the only Special Olympics athlete to compete in the tournament!

Off the court, Brittany volunteers at Dogs Unlimited and enjoys staying active in the pool and at the beach.
