“I’m so proud of Brittney for her dedication and the hard work that she put into the Leadership Academy,” shared Partner Suzanne Singer. “As she continues on her path, I have no doubt she will lead with integrity, empathy and professionalism while excelling in her future endeavors and as a leader in our firm.”
