Brittnee King is a program associate at the David and Lucile Packard Foundation. In her role, she supports grantmaking operations for the Foundation’s efforts to strengthen leaders, organizations, networks, movements, and thriving civic space for environmental and human rights defenders.   

Brittnee has spent most of her career working alongside community partners as a facilitator and educator in community-based organizations. 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 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, and wandering around the woods often. Her favorite things are coffee, scones, hobbits, swimming in fresh (Michigan) water, and spending time with her loved ones. She received her Bachelor of Arts from Kalamazoo College.
