Brittany Weldy

Brittany earned a Bachelor’s in Business Administration with a focus on Accounting & Finance in 2007. She began her career in the mortgage industry serving the Quincy, IL community as a mortgage loan processor and originator. In 2011, she took a leap and moved to Colorado Springs, to begin working with a mission organization that she is passionate about.  At the Navigators, she quickly moved up from an Accounts Payable rep, to the Strategic Initiatives Administrator of the organization. She resigned in 2017 to start her second business; (her first was an LLC as a freelance Yoga Instructor in Colorado). As Brittany grew in her role as the CFO and Operations Manager of a national life coaching firm, WeAlign, LLC, she relied heavily on the support and expertise of the Pikes Peak SBDC.  She was passionate about not only learning how to properly run a business, but also gaining wisdom from the specialists and experts in their own fields. During this season, she knew she wanted to help other entrepreneurs reach their greatest potential, as well.  After a move back to her hometown of Quincy, IL, she met her now husband, Colten, and they were married in January 2019.

Brittany continues to teach Yoga at the Hannibal YMCA, and most recently held the position as the Finance Manager at Turning Point Recovery Centers.  She is beyond excited to grow in her knowledge and skillset of starting growing and businesses, but also to train and provide the best resources to business owners in the Northeast MO Region.
