Hi, I’m Brynn. I’m a strategist, facilitator, and communicator focused on helping people grow and organizations thrive. I’m currently working at Facebook, where I’m the Director of People Growth — a team focused on employee engagement, performance management, talent strategy, communications, and culture. Additionally, I blog regularly about wellness and life design at www.wellfesto.com. I love thinking about how work and life can intersect with more grace, power, impact, and peace — and how companies can support that intersection.
My career path leading to this place has been non-traditional and varied, tied together by a consistent belief that well-being is the foundation of healthy people and successful organizations. I’ve designed and run health awareness campaigns for pharmaceutical clients, led luxury cycling trips in Europe and North America as a Trek Travel guide, run programs at The Taproot Foundation, and consulted on leadership and large-scale culture change while working at Blu Skye Sustainability Consulting and Saatchi & Saatchi. I have also served as a global ambassador for the Blue Planet Run Foundation and a First Mover Fellow at the Aspen Institute.
A native Wisconsinite, I completed my B.A. at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and my M.S. in Learning & Organizational Change at Northwestern University. In my free time, I can be found running, cycling, doing yoga, writing, and exploring the Bay Area and the globe with my family. I’m always interested in connecting with people with common interests, and I’d love to hear from you if you’d like to share ideas or collaborate.
