Brittany S. Russell

Grants and Contracts Coordinator
Boulder, CO

Brittany joined the SSI team in September of 2020 as the Grants and Contracts Coordinator. She completed her Bachelor's in Chemistry and began her legal studies at Southern University Law Center where she graduated and is barred in Louisiana. Brittany briefly worked as a lab technician in the oil and gas industry before attending law school. Her experience in the lab piqued her interest in environmental law, which prompted her to spend her final year of law school as a Law Clerk for the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality. There, she was mentored by environmental attorneys and was afforded opportunities to contribute to legislative projects and research. After successfully finishing the bar exam in Louisiana, she decided to move to Colorado where her skills would be applied at the Space Science Institute.

When Brittany is not working, she is with her Husband and their dog enjoying the breathtaking scenery of Colorado. She is excited to spend many of her coming years building a home in this beautiful state.
