Currently she is a volunteer career coach at the San Francisco Public Library. Briggette is a mother of three children, two boys and one girl and has a grandson who she loves to pieces, along with a bonus daughter and granddaughter. Becoming pregnant at the age of 14 changed the trajectory of her life, and she ended living in a group home for unwed mothers until the age of 18. Faced with many obstacles and challenges that left her intimately knowing what it’s like to face seemingly overwhelming odds, she managed to receive an A.S. from City College of San Francisco and an M.A. and B.A. from San Francisco State University, making her the first female in her family to accomplish these degrees. Briggette looks at learning as a lifelong exploration and believes continued personal growth is necessary.
