Brightwater Chef Instructor and Apprenticeship & Internship Coordinator Brittany Eddelbuttel is originally from Sydney, Australia and joined Brightwater in 2017. 

In her position, Brittany enjoys working alongside skilled professionals and being an educator and mentor to students, and strives to support student success in and outside of the classroom. In the kitchen, she emphasizes the importance of interdependence and teamwork.
