New Leaders Council

Meet our fellows: Brittany Vovolka

Leading up to the graduation of our 2017 Fellows, we will be introducing you to members of the 2017 class. Today, we meet Brittany Vovolka.

Tell us a little about yourself

Britt Vovolka

I'm a CPA working as an internal auditor for Kiewit and pursuing my graduate degree in accounting at UNO. In my spare time I love volunteering, talking politics, and walking my dog.

What attracted you to the New Leaders Council?

I felt drawn to progressive leadership in the aftermath of the presidential election, and just wanted to find a place where I could meet people who shared my values so I could have more meaningful conversations about how to make our community a better place to live.

What have you gotten out of the fellowship?

The fellowship provided me a safe space to be myself without hiding my experiences or values and from there I was able to explore what I really want out of my community and feel confident enough to build a project around that.

Why do you love Omaha?

Omaha is such a giving community and everyone is so passionate about making it the best it can be, even if we don't always agree on what that looks like or how we can get there.
