Britt is a first year medical student at the University of Alberta, in Canada. Her interest in aerospace medicine started during her undergraduate degree, where she dually trained and completed her private pilot's license while she completed her honors research in molecular and cellular biology, and in medical anthropology.

She has since started medical school, engaged in space communications research, started an AMSRO chapter at her medical school, and become the mentorship coordinator at Zenith Canada Pathways. She is interested in pursuing emergency medicine, and hopes to eventually complete a fellowship in aerospace medicine and work for a space organization.
