About

Brittany has always connected to the outdoors, from the mountains in upstate New York, to the ocean sides of Massachusetts, to city life in Washington DC (currently in Brooklyn, NY).  For the last eight years, Brittany has led and taught others how to enjoy the outdoors safely while also clearing pathways for the PGM (People of Global Majority) in the community—working with organizations such as Outdoor Afro, Appalachian Trail Conservancy, and REI.  In 2018 Brittany was recognized as one of  Blue Ridges Mountain Magazine’s 30 under 30 and American Alpine Club-DC section’s “one to watch.”
