Brittany Cole

Not your average Southern Belle, Brittany is a native of Georgia living in South Florida. She attended Auburn University (WAR EAGLE!) where she received her Bachelors in Political Science and has a Masters in International Relations from The University of Oklahoma.

Brittany has many passions in life, in addition to being a wife and mom. She loves all kitchen-based activities, traveling, being outdoors, reading, yoga, and dancing. When you cannot otherwise find her, check the local farmers market – she’s the one buying obscene amounts of kale and turnips.

Britt lives every day by the Maya Angelou quote, “Do the best until you know better. Then, when you know better, do better”. Her mission in life is to raise a family of compassionate and empathetic humans while doing the best she can to make the world a more tolerant, beautiful place.


  • This is exactly the place in my life that I am in right now! I’m sweet and quiet but I’ve learned that sometimes being sweet and quiet doesn’t cut it. Sometimes, in situations like you mentioned or when my kids are being bullied, I have to find the courage to speak up. I have done this more often in the past year than ever before in my life and it’s so freeing to know that I don’t ever have to be a victim of someone else’s dirty looks or inappropriate comments again. Thank you for this truth! Tweeted and stumbled! <3
