Office Coordinator

Brittany Snyman grew up in Gettysburg, PA. In 2012, she graduated from West Chester University with her B.S. in Physics and immediately entered into the Physics PhD program at West Virginia University. While at WVU, Britt realized that she no longer wanted to pursue Physics and began building a career in special effects for movies. During this transition, she had the opportunity to start working at BWS alongside her husband, Alex, and took on the role as office coordinator. She found great joy and accomplishment working as part of the BWS team and could see how her skill set could help push BWS past its current boundaries. Over the past year, she attained her life and health license, and became a Licensed Service Assistant for the office, taking on many new roles. When Britt is not working, she enjoys creating new special effects looks, travelling, skiing, working out, playing board games, playing video games, and watching movies.
