Brittany Sumner


Brittany cultivated her adventurous spirit and love for the environment as a child on her family’s farm in South Carolina. Her passion for the outdoors led her to Clemson University, where she earned a degree in Wildlife and Fisheries Biology in 2015. After graduating, she pursued this passion by moving to South Africa to conduct animal behavior research. This inspired her to work leading conservation study abroad trips for high school students. Brittany’s love for various ecosystems has brought her to serve all over the world, from Florida’s coastal ecosystems to Australia’s bush land. Her experiences with teaching about nature has led her to focus her career on environmental education and she is excited to continue this journey by sharing her passion with students at Phinizy.
