Jason Scullion” I had the pleasure of working with Brittney when she facilitated a planning workshop for our nonprofit, Wild Forests and Fauna. Due to Brittney’s thoughtful efforts and extensive tool chest of solid approaches to facilitation and institutional development, she was able to successfully lead our group in reaching all our goals. Without question, if Brittney was not facilitating our group we wouldn’t have achieved such success. If you’re looking for a facilitator who is thoughtful, talented, and enjoyable to work with, talk to her.”
