When not practicing pathology, Brittany enjoys spending time with her husband and playing with her two small children. After her kids go to bed she enjoys knitting and sewing by moonlight. In the summer, she attempts to cultivate a fruit and veggie garden with some wins and some losses each year. Thankfully the worm composter is always a win!
