Like many others, Brittney is an Ontario transplant. She grew up in Toronto and after a few years of living in Europe, made her way to the Sunshine Coast. She has come to find a sense of home among the mountains, salty air and wonderful communities of the west coast and begun to plant her roots.
While working in the sales and design field, she had the opportunity to work with the Austrian Consulate on their sustainability and green technology initiatives during the 2010 Winter Olympics. This shifted her focus from the profit-first sector towards a path that puts people and the planet at the forefront. Brittney is aGlobal Stewardship alumni. She is currently a Sociology and Sustainable Community Development student at Simon Fraser University. Brittney strives towards fostering a greater sense of belonging, awareness, and accountability.
Brittney is curious and always seem to be questioning the world around her. When she is not studying, she can usually be found with her nose buried in a book, chatting with strangers on the bus, lending a hand at UNYA’s Learning Centre, attending potlucks, on a hike admiring ferns and lichen, dappling around with art supplies, or challenging people to a game of Catan.
