She loves event planning, interior decorating, socializing and travel, and documenting it along the way!After almost ten years in the energy sector, Brittany took a sharp left turn into an international beauty organization, leading over 500 women globally, speaking at conferences, sharing trainings with the field and using social media marketing to elevate her brand awareness while creating authentic relationships with both her teams and her customers. Some career highlights have been earning four incentive trips, being awarded for top in sales, recruiting and leadership in Canada, reaching the highest executive rank company wide and being hand selected for the Global Advisory board in 2017 for Canada.Brittany thrives in diversity, authenticity and creativity. She loves connecting with the movers and shakers and isespecially passionate about empowering women to find their calling and do scary things to reach their dreams.
