Brittany is a member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation tribe and is currently in her second semester of the MBA program at Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, Oklahoma. She holds an undergraduate degree in Entrepreneurship with a minor in Finance and has a background in marketing, sales, and startups. She is passionate about product marketing and has accepted a summer internship position with Cigna Health in Bloomfield, CT, whereas an associate in their Marketing Leadership Development Program, she will have the opportunity to learn how to make a positive impact on consumers within the healthcare space.
Brittany’s active student involvement includes: President of the MBA Association, VP of Finance for the Graduate Learning Association for Students (GLAS), Entrepreneurial Lead for emerging technology in the veterinary health space being developed at OSU, Marketing Lead for an application being developed by an OSU research lab focused on reducing human trafficking in the United States, member of the Alumni Advisory Board for the MBA program, and Team Lead for the OSU MBA Case Competition Team.
Something that I was never able to pursue as an undergraduate student was extracurricular involvement, as I worked roughly 25-30 hours per week to keep myself afloat. AIGC has empowered me to work less and engage more. Not only has this allowed me to grow as a student and professional, but I have been given more opportunities to impact the lives of others – both students in the program and individuals outside of it – and I cannot tell you how grateful I am to the AIGC Scholarship Program. As the first in my family to go to college, I have always wanted to feel as if I am making a mark on my campus community and providing a path for others like me to follow, both tribal and not. AIGC has given me the opportunity to focus more of my efforts here. Through student associations, case teams, and mentoring other students, I feel like I have finally been able to grow and give back within academia, and so much of that is credited to the support of AIGC.
