Brittany Christenson   


Executive Director

Brittany Christenson is passionate about creating positive change in the Adirondacks.  She hails from the Northwestern United States and has traveled extensively in South America.  Now that Brittany and her husband Lucas have settled permanently in New York, she has decided to dedicate her career to leaving the Adirondacks better than she found them. 

Mrs. Christenson has served as the Administrator and Office Manager at Fledging Crow Vegetables where she honed her skills in membership management, public outreach, and grant administration.  While with Fledging Crow, she managed packing and logistics while overseeing a staff of up to 20 seasonal employees.  Prior to her experience at Fledging Crow, Brittany worked with the North Country Healthy Heart Network as their Community Nutrition Coordinator where she learned how to build community buy-in and develop innovative program evaluation metrics.  She received her Bachelor's degree in mathematics from Carroll College in Helena, Montana.
