When you walk into the transportation office, the first thing you will notice is Brittany Stone’s smiling face. The second discernable thing in the room are images of her husband and son framed on her desk, on the wall across from her desk and even her desktop background.

Mrs. Stone became the Assistant Head of Security, Safety, and Transportation in January of this year. She moved to Jacksonville from Wesley Chapel, Florida where she worked for 17 years.

She explained, “moving to Jacksonville was a big thing for me. But, I love it here. Everybody is great, and my son loves it here. I only knew one person [in Jacksonville]. I think it [moving] made me stronger than who I was, knowing that I can make new friends.”

Every morning Stone arrives at Bolles around 7:30 a.m., and her day consists of events including scheduling drills, fixing alarms, adjusting door sensors, and general troubleshooting. Her favorite aspect of working for Bolles is “working with people. I get to work with all of the people here at Bolles, not just a certain department or certain office.”

When she goes home at 4:00 p.m., she loves playing with her son outside. Her son, Colt, attends kindergarten here at Bolles. She explains her most memorable experience of her life was with her son: “I’ve had some trouble having children; I had lost four. I think that [giving birth to my son] would be the biggest thing in my life. Being a mom; becoming a mom.”

Recently, there has been a new addition to her family. They adopted a 12-week-old Boxer named Tank. She explained the challenges of adopting a dog, “you have to remember, ‘we have a dog; we have to take care of the dog. We have to come straight home and let the dog outside.’”

 Besides Assistant Head of Security, Safety, and Transportation and full-time mom, Mrs. Stone is also an avid shopper. She goes Black Friday shopping every year with her mom. One time, she bought a Louis Vuitton wallet priced at around one thousand dollars for only $10.00 at Goodwill.

Stone’s style is usually inspired by the weather and various ideas from Pinterest.

With her gorgeous outfits now with maybe a little puppy fur, she wears a gold necklace with her son’s name on it every day. Mrs. Stone says that she especially loves Colt’s, “personality and love for everyone.” Her life begins and ends with her beautiful family.
