Brittany holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in International Development and Anthropology. She moved to Argentina after graduating, where she studied and practiced the art of clowning, listened and danced to a lot of live music, and taught English as a Second Language (ESL). Brittany also taught ESL in Berkeley when she returned to California. Her passion for social justice led her to law school, and she earned her JD from UC Berkeley.
During law school, Brittany interned at the California Asylum Representation Clinic, the East Bay Community Law Center, the Family Violence Law Center, the Family Violence Appellate Project, Legal Assistance for Seniors, and the International Human Rights Law Clinic, in which she co-authored and co-presented a report in Spanish on non-discrimination, hate crimes, and gender identity at the Parliamentary Seminar on Equality and Non-Discrimination in El Salvador in 2014.
Upon graduating, Brittany received an Equal Justice Works public interest fellowship to launch a Medical-Legal Partnership for survivors of gender-based violence seeking care at Alameda County's Highland Hospital. For two years, she provided wraparound legal services to these survivors, representing them in family court, immigration matters and public benefits claims.
Brittany brings her deep passion for human rights and genuine love of people to all her work at Jobe Law. Brittany considers it a great honor and privilege to serve the immigrant community, and she is humbled daily by her client's life experiences. When not fighting for social justice and immigrant rights, Brittany enjoys dancing, freestyling, biking, and traveling the world.
