Brittanie has joyfully given her life to bring Love into the darkest places on Earth, and to invite the enslaved home into God’s heart of safety and peace. She lives to see the power of Love bring freedom, justice, joy, and creativity.
After years of performing arts training and performing in the USA and South Africa, Brittanie began her work by launching an art therapy program in South Africa which allowed children suffering from trauma to find healing through the arts. After seeing several children complete that program successfully, Brittanie attended Iris Ministries Harvest School of Missions and after graduating moved to Mtwapa, Kenya and served as the house manager for a rescue and rehabilitation home for child survivors of sexual slavery. She also served as coordinator of a campaign in primary schools aimed at preventing child prostitution before it starts by educating children about their value and identity, and empowering them to make good choices concerning their bodies.
Over time Brittanie realized that she is most fulfilled by doing art and working to abolish sex slavery at the same time. Her newest project, Art and Abolition, is the marriage of the two. Art and Abolition s a freedom movement that uses art as a vehicle to free, heal, and empower young survivors of sexual slavery in East Africa.

Brittanie’s heart is to see survivors not only rescued, but genuinely free, fully healed, restored and empowered to live wholesome, creative, colorful, and fulfilling lives. She also enjoys singing loudly and dancing when no one is watching, and could survive for the rest of her life on beans and rice, Honey Nut Cheerios, and coffee. When she’s not dreaming of a rape-free world she is probably dreaming of a world where every night is girls night with her best girlfriends having girl talk, drinking wine, and laughing til the sun comes up.
