Brittany Hunter

Brittany studied political science with an emphasis in Constitutional studies at Utah Valley University and is currently working toward law school.

The Mises Institute has played an integral role in Brittany’s development both as an academic and as a libertarian. While still an undergrad, Brittany found she was getting more value from her online Mises courses than she was from her actual college coursework. After petitioning her academic adviser, she was able to change the school’s policy and apply her online Mises courses toward her degree.

Brittany worked with the Ron Paul presidential campaign in Iowa, Nevada, and Utah. She is also a Mises University alumna as well as regular contributor to the Mises Wire blog. Above all, she believes that the free market and libertarian principles are the only way to create a truly free society.
