Hi, I’m Brittany Threatt, 36 years old ,Veteran of the USAF. I am Mother to a beautiful boy named Keston who is 3 1/2 years old, with a Bachelors of Business Administration with a concentration in Small Business & Entrepreneurship from Winthrop University in Rock Hill, SC. I am currently an Accounts Payables Specialist with Bruker Nano Inc, RMR Business Unit. I joined the US Air Force because I always wanted to follow in my families footsteps. I come from a lone of Veterans, My grandfather was is WWII, My Dad & Uncle in Vietnam. I wanted more for my life as I was struggling to make ends meet and wanted stability. I joined the Air Force March 3 2004 just one month after my 21st Birthday. I couldn’t forget what happened that day when the towers were attacked and just wanted to give back to my country. I served 10 years as a Security Forces Police Officer with 2 tours: one to Camp Bucca, Iraq for detainee operations from 2007-2008 and Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan doing perimeter security from 2011-2012 where I was diagnosed with PTSD & Anxiety Disorder. I constantly try to give back to the community by volunteering with Unified Dream, any community service presented and helping fellow Veterans. My passion is to help other Veterans whom have had the same struggles as I and you show that PTSD, & mental health can be managed and to find their purpose outside of the military. My PTSD took me to places I never thought that I could get through, but in May 2018 I decided to put myself first and finally mend the traumas that had been hindering me for so long. That is where I met my amazing mentor and friend Jake Hampu. He has seen me at my worst and has helped me grow into the person I am today. Him and his organization has helped me find the strength and love within myself to make difficult choices and start over here in West Palm and has supported me constantly. Without him and his organization, mentor ship and giving me an opportunity to show my skill sets and love for the community I wouldn’t be where I am today. I am so grateful for this organization and everything it has taught me and the lives we get to touch. It’s truly an honor to volunteer for such an amazing organization.
