Britney Nesbit was born in Atlanta but calls Charleston, South Carolina home. Britney is a proud University of South Carolina alum. She graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Biology. Her love for science and passion for helping others led her to pursue a career as a pharmacist. But after witnessing the real health disparities experienced by LGBT+ folks and marginalized communities of color, she was motivated to step outside of the healthcare provider role and into the role of a social justice advocate. Britney has exercised her commitment to intersectional advocacy, racial equity, and coalition building by facilitating LGBT+ ally workshops, creating empathy-building training sessions, and teaming up with LGBT+ community organizations to make healthcare institutes a safer and affirming space for LGBT+ individuals. She completed her year as a Community Organizer for CSE through the Tzedek Social Justice Fellowship in July 2017 and is now the Southern Equality Fund Coordinator.
