use your brain. better.
I delight in helping you get your work done. Tell me what you'd like to improve, and we'll tailor a solution to fit your needs.
We begin with your coaching goals: What do *you* want to improve?
- Do you long to work more efficiently or effectively?
- Working hard but not getting results?
- Avoiding burnout?
- Unsure of how to get started on a project?
- Tedious computer workflow slowing you down?
If you've tried and tried, and are still not working your best, just pushing harder isn't enough to get the results you want. You need an outside perspective to help light your path.
Think of me as your personal Cognitive Neuroscientist:
I help my clients better understand their own cognitive functioning. From there, we create customized plans to work with your unique brain, playing to its strengths.
What I uniquely bring to the table is my knowledge of the brain and my lifetime of observations about how people *really* work and behave-- not just how we think we *should* work. I have a keen eye for the invisible threats to a productive and happy life that many people miss.
I tech, therefore I am:
I often recommend devices and apps to help you work best. I'm generally tech savvy, but specialize in Apple devices. We could set up your Mac, iPhone, or iPad to work in a way that best suits your working style.
I love sharing new ways to make our work easier—especially for those tasks that we tend to avoid or that our brains aren't good at managing. I love apps that help us get past the resistance we feel to tedious, repetitive tasks. I'll happily make you a few custom workflows to get started on some of the tasks you tend to avoid the most.

I'm a former Wildland Firefighter who wanted to start a business selling souvenir T-shirts to firefighters. I wasn't sure how to go about doing it, so I spent years wondering and procrastinating.
That's when Brittany stepped in. She didn't know what fire shirts were, but that didn't matter. She listened as I explained my idea and what I *thought* I needed to do to get started. In just over an hour, we had a solid plan to get me out to a fire. She was great at getting to the heart of the matter and laying out the appropriate steps to accomplish my goal. The most important thing was knowing what I *didn't* need to be worrying about. There were so many things I thought I had to have in place first. It took an outside perspective to get me to realize that I could be ready to start almost immediately.
That hour or so coaching session was more productive than the years I spent trying to do it myself. I ended up making it to a couple fires that year and selling out each time. I'm now branching out into other avenues of shirts too. I highly recommend Brittany if you're trying to get a project or business off the ground, or if you're stuck in a rut and need a point in the right direction.Eric, Business Owner, Eugene Oregon
Brittany has very practical, reasonable, and useful advice, often all at the same time.Anna, Eugene Oregon
I'm a solo attorney with a full client load and not enough hours in the day. At first I came to Brittany to assist me in the transition from my PC to my new Mac and ended up having her help me completely streamline client intake and the production of legal documents.
I really had no idea I could use productivity help. I'm type-A, a planner, a get-stuff done girl. But as we got talking about how setting up my Mac, she helped me identify the things in my business that were slowing me down, the things that I didn't enjoy, and the things that my computer should be doing for me. With that in mind she set me up with a few tools on my computer and designed and implemented system that saves me precious hours every week and make my job a lot easier. I would definitely recommend her productivity consults to any small business owner or freelancer. Oh, and my Mac is working GREAT for my little law office.Attorney and Apple Convert, Portland Oregon
