BRITTANY STIFFLER CRABTREE HAS A PASSION FOR EMPOWERING LEADERS wherever they are – whether its through hiking, public art, or yoga – she’s committed to broadening the definition of community engagement and leadership.

She began her CAREER IN PUBLIC SERVICE by joining AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps and served over 1800 hours in Washington DC, Ohio, Virginia and Pennsylvania.

Since then, she has served on the local, state and federal level to promote public service and civic engagement through the Regional Prevention Center of Sedgwick County, the Kansas Volunteer Commission and the Corporation for National and Community Service. She is a proud Kansan, having served in various roles under three Kansas Governors: Kathleen Sebelius, Mark Parkinson and Sam Brownback.

Always looking for new ways to teach leadership, Brittany previously partnered with the Kansas Leadership Center (KLC) to launch a “Leadership Hikes” pilot at the Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve, combining outdoor immersion with leadership principles. Today she is a LEADERSHIP COACH WITH THE KLC and is committed to courageous and creative thinking to increase the culture of leadership in Kansas.

Brittany brings this courageous and creative thinking to Bloomerang as a passionate volunteer, learning each step of Carol Bradbury’s creative process. This intimate knowledge of the collaborative art experience has given her a keen ability to communicate the positive impact of Bloomerang on communities, and the people that live in them.


I believe we can shape the human experience & courageously stretch the boundaries of what’s possible. Bloomerang is a wonderful way to put this theory into action.
