Brita brings a unique global perspective of living and working on four continents to Douglas College. A senior executive and consultant, Brita’s marketing and communications career spans financial services (HSBC Bank Canada, Vancity, Westminster Savings), the automotive sector (Vauxhall Motors/GM, Jaguar), higher education (SFU Beedie School of Business), and market research (Maritz Ltd. – London, UK).

With oversight for a multimillion dollar national engagement portfolio, Brita worked with professional brands such as the Vancouver Canucks ™, Calgary Flames ™, Toronto Blue Jays ™, and Association des Golfeurs Professionnels du Québec™ (Quebec PGA), as well as community-based partners in the sport (runs, triathlons, skating, basketball) and non-sport (women's leadership, art, wine, and social impact) sectors.
An active board member, coach and mentor, Brita has sat on a number of professional and community boards such as the American Marketing Association, Young Women in Business, Kitsilano Neighbourhood House, Vantage Point, and the Passion Foundation.
