Here are 10 things to know about Brittany Bachtel:
What inspires her: “I have always been intrigued and inspired by people who are at the top of their game and apply their work ethic to other aspects of their lives. I was a huge fan of Kobe Bryant for his work ethic and how that was beginning to translate into the business arena. I’m a big fan of Taylor Swift as well. Not only do I love her music, but I love how she speaks her mind, stands up for what she believes in, and has developed an amazing real estate portfolio.”
Last book read: “I have been working my way through old classics. The last one I read was ‘Wuthering Heights’ by Emily Brontë.”
Childhood dream job: “I wanted to be all kinds of things, but the top three that come to mind are a marine biologist, physical therapist and a lawyer.”
On her bucket list: “Learning a second language, attending a summer Olympics, competing on ‘Survivor,’ and traveling the world.”
Most memorable travel experience: “My husband and I recently traveled to Italy for our honeymoon. We plan on going back. We fell in love with the food and the history.”
Favorite animal: “My favorite animal is a dog. Our dog, Matilda, is a part of the family. She is so loyal and sweet.”
Cuisine she can’t you live without: “I couldn’t live without Mexican or Italian food. Yum!”
Best bingeworthy TV series: “Probably ‘Survivor’ or ‘The Kardashians.’”
What would surprise people about you? I’ve climbed the tallest mountain in the continental United States — Mt. Whitney.
Music she’d bring on a desert island: “‘Reputation’ by Taylor Swift or ‘Multiply’ by Ed Sheeran.”
