Congratulations to Brittany Jefferson for five years of service at Boys Home of Virginia!
Brittany is no stranger to Boys Home. When Brittany was growing up, her mother and father were houseparents in Brown cottage. Following in their footsteps, Brittany is now a houseparent in Watkins Cottage. Watkins Cottage is Boys Home’s elementary level cottage. Brittany’s father is still at Boys Home and works as Campus Life Manager. Brittany’s mother is a special education teacher in the public school system.
Brittany graduated from Covington High School in 2010 and then began classes at Dabney S. Lancaster Community College while working as a lifeguard at the YMCA. After her time at DSLCC, Brittany worked at the Shenandoah Autism Center for one year. She enjoyed her time there but decided to come back to Boys Home as it was a familiar place and somewhere she called “home.”
One of Brittany’s favorite things about working at Boys Home is the time with the students during the holidays. She says it is so heart warming to see the students so excited about the season. Brittany says during the holidays, you see a completely different side of the students.
Brittany says what she looks forward to advancing and growing in her career at Boys Home. The administration is grateful for Brittany’s dedication to the mission of Boys Home of Virginia.
