Brittnee joined the Packard Foundation in 2020 as a program associate supporting grantmaking with the Ocean Strategic Framework, the Indonesia Marine Strategy, and the Tuna subprogram.
Brittnee has spent most of her career working alongside community partners as a facilitator and educator. Guiding groups through processed-focused facilitation, positive behavior support, and trauma-informed care, her work has supported folks of all ages in transformative leadership development. 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 both one another and to the planet, and that we all deserve access to the spiritual, healing, and wild spaces of nature.
Outside of work, Brittnee is dedicated to laughing deeply, reading slowly, wandering around the woods often, and spending time with her dear, wild family. She received her BA from Kalamazoo College.
