Bree is originally from coastal North Carolina, where she grew up sailing/canoeing and participating in a local river restoration program and leadership camp. She worked at Rockbrook Camp for Girls where she taught white water kayaking and leadership skills. Afterward, she studied abroad in Paris, France where she taught English. In the following years, she worked at the NC Aquarium at Fort Fisher, and then the Wilmington Convention Center as an Event Coordinator where she hosted events with as many as 3,000 people. She is passionate about conservation, sustainability, and encouraging leadership in others. She is inspired by the growth she has seen in others while at camp and supports the message that Chewonki shares through its camp programs.
Throughout the year, Bree travels to homesteads and small farms to assist in agricultural, infrastructural, and environmental sustainability projects with her husband Chris, cats Tommy and Nala, and dogs Killian and Princess.
