Organizing Committee Secretary

Brittany Varisco, MA, MS, is a doctoral student at the Graduate School of Professional Psychology, University of Denver and is currently serving as the graduate student member on the Board of the Rocky Mountain. Humanistic Counseling and Psychological Association. After earning her bachelor’s degree in counseling and human development at the United States Air Force Academy, Brittany served on active duty as an instructor pilot in the Air Force, flying combat airlift, medical evacuation, and humanitarian missions in the C-17 Globemaster. While on active duty, she earned a Master of Science in psychology from Capella University and returned to the United States Air Force Academy in 2013 as an evaluator pilot in the Powered Flight Program. In 2018, Brittany took a leap of faith and left active duty to join the Air Force Reserves and pursue her PsyD. She found her path to psychology, and more specifically existential-humanistic psychology, had been paved by her lived experiences both in the military and in her personal life. Her clinical interests include trauma, health psychology, psycho-oncology, attachment theory, spirituality, substance use/addiction, and advocacy. Brittany is passionate about student outreach and mentorship as well as expanding exposure to the world of existential, humanistic, and transpersonal psychology in undergraduate and graduate programs.
