She works hard to center reflection, healing, and creativity in all she does, no matter the activity or age group it serves. Brit has taught poetry in a multitude of spaces from community organizations, to schools, to churches.Brit published her first book of poetry titled, "Moods, Melanin, and Magic: A Manifesto" back in May 2022 and will be releasing her spoken word album titled, "Nocturnal Butterfly" in April 2022.
