Growing up with a father who graduated from West Point Military Academy and served in the Army for 26 years, Brett and his family moved about every two to three years. These frequent transitions sparked a lifetime love for travel and led Brett to explore many parts of the world.
After graduating from Southern Methodist University, he joined a boutique public relations firm in Dallas. For the next two decades, he held progressive senior marketing and operations roles, both domestically and internationally. Along the way, he earned an MBA at the University of Edinburgh Management School in Scotland.
Brett serves as an advisor to Authentically American as well as to a number of not-for-profit organizations, including the Missouri chapter of Make-A-Wish and Biblical Business Training. He also is a board member of Warrior Transition Network, a veteran mentorship organization. Brett and his wife, Joylin, have three children.
