The time came that Emily needed a kombucha brewing side-kick, enter Brigette Freel. Brigette joined WTK in September 2015 following a career with Alberta Health Services. Brigette has her Masters in Environmental Practice from Royal Roads University, bringing a wealth of experience to the team. Her sense of adventure led her to fight forest fires with Manitoba Conservation, jumping out of helicopters and fighting large flames. Currently, when she isn’t brewing kombucha or testing new flavours, you can find her riding her motorcycle in the mountains, snowboarding, and travelling as much as possible. Brigette has been to over 30 countries, and has lived abroad on a number of occasions.
