Brittny followed a diverse career path before entering public life. At the RDCK she worked in their environmental services department focused on programs such as recycling and water systems. In 2014, she co-founded The Cannabis Conservancy, a company that facilitates environmental certification for the emerging cannabis industry. With a commitment to science and a passion for sustainability Brittny led the project management for the development of “Sun and Earth Certified”. This regenerative certification builds upon the principles of organic agriculture focusing on soil health, onsite nutrient fertility, empowering workers, and fostering community engagement.

Brittny loves long walks with her dog Stella, and looks forward to sitting around a campfire on a cool autumn evening with her partner Paul. Family focused, Brittny is very close with her parents Terry and Deb and brother Sanden.
