Brenna Frank fell in love with the outdoors growing up in South Miami. She calls herself “a swamp person,” who regularly volunteered at bay, beach and Everglades cleanups alongside her family.
So much time outdoors laid the foundation for Brenna to attend the University of North Carolina Wilmington, where she earned her Bachelor of Science in Geology and Geographic Information Sciences in 2021. She completed a GIS internship at Cape Fear River Watch, where the water sampling skills she acquired as a volunteer came in handy.
Brenna was hired at ONE Environmental Group in May 2022, and as an Environmental Consultant, performs due diligence assessments. She works remotely in Jacksonville, North Carolina.
Brenna is grateful for the accommodating culture at ONE that prioritizes work-life balance. She is the mother to two elementary-aged children, and they share two dogs, a Goldendoodle and American Bulldog.
Brenna recently completed three months of hiking along the Mountain-to-Sea Trail that stretches 1,175 miles from the Great Smoky Mountains to the Outer Banks. The adventure included seeing bears, elk, otters and an eastern diamondback rattlesnake up close in addition to participating in a horse rescue. Brenna and her children also collect snails together and maintain three terrariums.
