Everyone needs something to look forward to, and for us that's the Seattle Street Food Festival. Even though it's all the way in August, the Festival has just announced it's expanding to two days.
Britt is a passionate Seattlite who loves to write, talk, eat and sleep (among some other things). She left this wonderful city for college at USC, and quickly moved back to the Pacific NorthBest as soon as she graduated. She’s a little obsessed and will defend this city to the death.
An all around communications junkie, Britt’s dabbled in broadcast journalism, radio, talent publicity, weeklies, and strategic planning firms. Outside of writing, her passions are kids and animals - she volunteers with the Big Brothers Big Sisters program.
When Britt isn’t talking or typing, she’s probably watching Law and Order: SVU and cuddling with her wonderful dog Bella, trying to get friends to go out dancing, or hauling away on the elliptical.
