Brittnee Pierse has over 20 years of experience in financial planning and analysis. She started her career as a consultant for Arthur Anderson and later FTI Consulting, with a focus in data analytic services. After transitioning to the financial services industry, she went on to hold senior level financial planning roles within both E*TRADE Financial and then Fifth Third Bank, eventually serving as the lead financial officer for various business lines within the Chicago area. Brittnee has a Bachelor of Business Administration degree in Economics from the University of Iowa.
Brittnee’s passion for finance within education was sparked by a $100 fundraising goal that her daughter was given the first week of kindergarten. Naively confused about why a kindergartner would need to raise $100 for a school she’d attended for a week, Brittnee set out to understand how our schools are funded and the challenges they face. Brittnee served as President of the parent teacher organization and chair of the School Accountability Committee at Meadow View Elementary, as well as the Treasurer of the Renaissance Elementary Magnet School Parent Crew.
