Britani Kessler, DO
Britani was honored to serve on the AMSA Board of Trustees as National President. She is a recent graduate of Nova Southeastern University, College of Osteopathic Medicine and received her undergraduate degree in Biological Sciences with an emphasis on Premedical Studies from Florida Atlantic University. She would like to focus her year on medical student debt and AMSA’s “Just Medicine” Campaign.
Britani has had a long history with AMSA and has held the National leadership positions of President-Elect, Vice President for Membership, Board of Regional Directors, and as a Premedical Regional Director. She was also very involved on the local level as well. She served as Vice President for her premedical chapter and Chapter President for her medical school. Her medical school chapter was very successful and won the “Club of the Year” award from Nova and the AMSA Paul R Wright award for chapter excellence by focusing on community outreach. She has been a member of this organization since 2006 and credits her success in both her premedical and medical career to AMSA by showing her that the world of physicians-in-training doesn’t have to be limited to a textbook.
In her spare moments, she enjoys reading, cooking, and dancing. Britani would like to enter the field of Pediatrics upon starting residency.
