She led a variety of high-profile projects before beginning a 9-year career with Nike in 2010. After meeting the Belgian love of her life, she moved with Nike to The Netherlands and continued her corporate career in Europe until 2018. Brittney recently returned to the USA with her husband and their 2-year old son, Finn.
