About Brittany

Brittany has been dealing with the symptoms of anxiety and depression since 2003 and has been writing for NewLifeOutlook|Anxiety since November 2017. She wants to assure others suffering with mental illness that they are not alone, while also proving that despite how debilitating anxiety and depression can be, it is possible to lead a contented and fulfilling life.

Growing up, Brittany voraciously devoured any book she could find, from Bunnicula to the entire Bailey School Kids series. Her love of literature only grew with age, eventually leading her to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree in Honours English, as well as a Master of Arts degree in English and Cultural Studies. Now owning more grammar and style handbooks than she’d care to admit, much of her career revolves around writing, editing, proofreading, and communicating with other people.

When she’s not reading or writing, Brittany enjoys playing roller derby and spending time with her miniature dachshund, Billy. If you are a fellow dog-lover or just need a little sunshine in your day, you can find Billy on Instagram @BillyTheBlonde.
