Brittney Jones
She/Her/Hers
Director of Development

Brittney is a bridge builder who is dedicated to building champions for educational equity. She leads fundraising efforts as the Director of Development at Leading Educators.

Brittney’s “Why”

Brittney has always had a passion for helping others and a strong understanding of the inequities that exist for families from low-income backgrounds. As the daughter of an educator and entrepreneur, Brittney always recognized that she held a level of privilege that her peers did not. That awareness is what has led to her passion for lifelong learning and seeking to expose others to experiences and knowledge that can change trajectories for the better.

Brittney’s Journey

Before joining Leading Educators, Brittney worked with the School Support Center for KIPP New Orleans Schools where she served in a number of roles focused on network level operations and fundraising support. Most recently as Director of Development with Teach For America - South Louisiana, she led fundraising efforts across the seven parish region to ensure that schools in traditionally underserved communities had the teacher and leadership talent necessary to lead students to excellent academic outcomes.

Brittney holds an M.S. in Management Information Systems and a B.S. in Business Entrepreneurship, both from Southern University at New Orleans. She lives in New Orleans, LA, and absolutely loves designing coordinating t-shirts for her family.
