Britt grew up in Berlin and found a second home in Sydney, where she lived 12 years in Bondi Beach and fell in love with the ocean. She is a marketing and communications professional with 20+ years experience in international marketing and business – her skill set honed in international ad agencies and at one of the world’s top management consulting firms.
After the corporate career she didn’t do Eat, Pray, Love – rather Live, Discover, Recycle. Britt co-ran a non-profit domestic recycling collection service in Tulum, Mexico for three years, CleanCycle (aka TulumRecycles) to help reduce the trash (especially plastic) that ends up in the overflowing landfill and educate the community on waste management and recycling. She studied Business Sustainability Management at Cambridge University Institute for Sustainability Leadership and Festival Assessment with A Greener Festival / Falmouth University and now consults businesses in ‘sustainability amplification’ – helping companies operate more sustainably with less impact on the planet and creating stories and campaigns to amplify positive change.
Britt was supposed to join leg 17 of the actual eXXpedition sailing voyage, and since the cancellation due to Covid-19 is thrilled to be part of this Virtual Voyage with inspiring women to learn more about microplastics and help carry the message and necessary change to her community and beyond.
