Britnee graduated with a bachelor’s degree in journalism with an emphasis in Broadcast at OU. She minored in political science thinking that she wanted to become a political analyst. But, Britnee soon found out she loves telling the stories of people in her community and showing what they think about state topics.

Britnee is the contributing correspondent at KFOR, in other words, she does just about anything. She is the social media correspondent, Animal House reporter, associate producer and also does many things on the web.

Britnee has watched KFOR since she was 5 years old with her grandmother in Midwest City. She remembers Kevin and Linda from when she was young and has always looked up to them. She is excited to be a part of KFOR.

Britnee loves cheering for the OKC Thunder, OU Sooners and volunteering in the community. She is an animal lover and helps rescue any lost animal she finds. In 2012, Britnee ran the half Oklahoma Memorial Marathon and she is looking forward to running the full marathon soon. Also in 2012, she was nominated for ionOklahoma Magazine's 30 Under 30, a prestigious award given to young upcoming talent in Oklahoma.

In Britnee's free time she loves to travel, read, work out, visit many local restaurants in the OKC area and meeting as many Oklahomans as possible.
