Beyond the Bio

Running in the woods is a favorite pastime of Brita’s. When she’s not trail running, she enjoys spending time with her husband, daughter, two dogs and two cats, generally avoiding housework. Anytime it’s sunny you can find her on a patio enjoying happy hour.

I love evaluation because… I get to play a role in positive change for our communities.
