Brittany supports the Measuring Impact and Sustainable Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH) Systems initiatives as a Learning Specialist. She brings over 6 years of experience in international development, with a focus on the social dimensions of natural resource management and collaborative, cross-sector efforts.
Brittany comes to EI from Conservation International (CI), where she was a specialist and instructor in conflict-sensitive approaches to conservation. At CI, Brittany also led the development of monitoring and evaluation systems and data collection methods for integrated projects for health and biodiversity conservation. She contributed to the design of a monitoring and evaluation system to capture the benefits of linking freshwater conservation with water, sanitation, and hygiene activities that is now being applied to USAID-funded projects in South Africa and Uganda.
Brittany’s passion lies in developing effective collaborative processes to balance environmental protection with the diverse needs of communities. She has applied this skill set in a range of contexts—from supporting a watershed conservancy in California to connect with a broad spectrum of stakeholders, to engaging youth and educators in Israel, Jordan, and Palestine to promote cross-border water cooperation. Brittany holds a Master of International Environmental Policy from the Middlebury Institute of International Studies, where she focused on freshwater conservation and environmental conflict management.
