Brittney Joyce, Senior Consultant
While giving a tour of her alma mater, Eckerd College (St. Petersburg, FL), a strong wind knocked Brittney off a 13-foot sea wall but she conducted the remainder of her tour swimming and shouting from the waves of Boca Ciega Bay. She understands one point of the campus visit extremely well: the show must go on. Four campuses and 11 years later, Brittney has worked at a wide range of institutions in several admissions roles with progressive responsibility, most recently as Campus Visit Manager at Furman University (Greenville, SC). Big, public, small, private, residential and commuter, Brittney’s experiences working at the University of South Florida, Southern Methodist University and the University of Texas at Arlington have shown her the “ins-and-outs” of designing a campus visit tailored to each institution’s unique culture.
Being an agent of change isn’t easy. And change has been the only constant Brittney has ever known. She has experienced three university rebranding campaigns, participated in building a new state-of-the-art Welcome Center, transformed multiple student Ambassador groups, and served as a national leader in the Collegiate Information and Visitor Services Association (CIVSA), where she served on the Executive Board as Director of Communications from 2010 – 2014.
A native of Dallas, Texas, Brittney has learned that southern charm and hospitality go a long way in cutting through higher education red-tape and bureaucracy when she’s leading the charge. She has learned the importance of finesse when getting buy-in from campus constituents, establishing trust and accountability with students and staff, asking the tough questions of administrators and being persistent in the pursuit of authenticity (all with a smile and a glass of sweet tea).
Brittney resides in Hanover, New Hampshire with her husband, son, two dogs and two guinea pigs. In her spare time, she is on the hunt for the best New England lobster roll, makes authentic Tex-Mex meals (with real tortillas) and monograms anything she can hold down.
