Brittany is a graduate student in the Master of Community and Regional Planning program. Over the course of completing a B.A. in Geography and International Relations at UBC she became fascinated by human relationships with their natural and built environments. Following graduation, Brittany gained hands on experience in sustainable development, participatory planning, and citizen-led design in Canada and internationally. She is looking forward to learning how the use of participatory planning and planning tools can foster a multidisciplinary and inclusive approach to designing for water resilient communities and urban environments.
