https://saddleback.com/stories — Growing up, Britaney's mom felt emotionally distant and her father had abandoned her. As a junior in college, her undiagnosed bipolar disorder combined with the lack of support and the stress of her workload pushed her to the limit. Overwhelmed, Britaney tried to fight back against the thoughts of suicide. That breakdown forced Britaney to get professional help which opened the door to using her musical talent as therapy. Her singing led her from auditions in LA, to an international K-pop competition in Seoul, South Korea. Britaney has found support through renewed life purpose, a life-giving church community, and counselors that have helped her find a healthy, daily routine. Now, she’s using her voice to praise God on the Saddleback Church Worship team and as an advocate for mental health awareness.
