Brittnee joined the Packard Foundation in 2020 as a Program Associate for Conservation and Science, supporting the Indonesia Marine Strategy and Tuna subprograms. Brittnee has spent the past decade working as a facilitator, organizer, and educator, supporting transformative leadership development and working alongside community partners. Most recently, she worked as a racial healing practitioner under the training of the Center for Courage & Renewal and the W.K. Kellogg Foundation’s Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation Initiative, and as a student development coordinator for a field-based Conservation Biology class. Her work is driven by the belief that our humanity and well-being is directly tied to that of the planet, and that we all deserve access to the spiritual, healing, and wild spaces of nature, regardless of identity. Brittnee received her BA from Kalamazoo College.
