Meet Our Wellness Experts: Brittaney Whitenhill

The Raleigh Founded Team

Brittaney Whitenhall is a force of nature, blending her diverse expertise in health promotion, education, and environmental stewardship into a harmonious mission. As the Founder and Head Garden Coach of Our Backyard LLC, she has catalyzed a transformational journey driven by her profound passion for holistic health.

With a Bachelor of Science in Health Promotion & Disease Prevention from the University of Southern California and an MBA from the University of Denver, Brittaney's academic foundation is robust. However, it was her deep-rooted connection to nature and years of hands-on experience in composting, planting, and harvesting that propelled her to pivot from a 12-year career in education to follow her heart's calling.

Brittaney's mantra, "Where there is space, something can grow, so let it be whole," encapsulates her ethos. She believes in creating pathways toward optimal health for all, emphasizing the profound impact of food on individual and collective well-being. Her dedication to educating individuals and communities about the transformative power of food has been a driving force in her life.

Beyond her role as a garden coach, Brittaney's professional journey is marked by significant accomplishments. She served as the Regional Lead of Early Childhood Partnerships at LENA, focusing on increasing access to resources that empower children and parents alike. Her innovative strategies and tools have revolutionized parent involvement and engagement in schools and educational organizations worldwide.

When Brittaney isn't tending to plants, you can find her immersing herself in joyful moments with her 2-year-old daughter and husband, exploring new hiking trails, and experimenting with flavor-packed recipes at home. Her vibrant spirit, combined with her dedication to health, education, and community, is a testament to her unwavering commitment to making the world a healthier and more vibrant place—one seed at a time.
