Brittny, a co-founder and Director of Operations of The Cannabis Conservancy, grew up in Canada’s cannabis capital, Nelson BC. In 2018, she was elected to serve as a Councilor for the City of Nelson. She has had a lifelong interest in the cultivation and legalization of Cannabis. Her interest in corporate environmental practices was reinforced while working in Canada’s oil sands with a small contractor at Suncor, the first company to develop the oil sands, which inspired her to pursue an internship on Vandana Shiva’s seed saving farm in India and an M.Sc. in Environmental Science and Policy.

Her expertise includes policy development and implementation, environmental education and scientific research. Before coming on full time with TCC she was the Environmental Technologist for the Regional District of Central Kootenay. Her professional focus includes resource conservation, resource recovery, and agriculture. She currently sits on NCIA’s Scientific Advisory Committee.
