Brittany resides in Richmond, Indiana with her husband and their five children. She became interested in the Perinatal Bereavement field after the sudden and unexpected loss of their son, Brantley, at 38 weeks gestation. Brantley was considered a full-term stillbirth. Shortly after his passing, Kyle and Brittany experienced a six-week miscarriage. Her love of research led her to establish the Indiana Cuddle Cot Campaign in hopes that she could provide additional support and resources for families who have also experienced a Pregnancy or Infant related loss. During the day, Brittany is the Practice Manager for Runnels Chiropractic.
She is the recent recipient of the Wayne County's Outstanding Young Professional Community Involvement Award. She has also been nominated for the ATHENA Young Professional Leadership Award.
Kyle is a 2007 graduate of Richmond High School in Richmond, Indiana. He obtained his Technical Certificate in Construction from Ivy Tech Community College in 2012. He currently resides in Richmond with his wife Brittany and their five children.
Kyle is the voice of reason and the go-to person when Brittany comes up with new ideas for the campaign. He provides the muscle and ensures that events go smoothly. His passion for the Indiana Cuddle Cot Campaign comes from the fact that he is able to help honor the memory of their son, Brantley, while being able to help other families.
