Brittany "PeaHead" Wright

Social Media/ Marketing Coordinator

Growing up landlocked in the Midwest, Brittany always had a love for the water, but only from its surface. After relocating to Florida, her passion for the ocean and Mother Earth grew even more. Being an adrenaline junkie, she was looking for more adventures. So in the Fall of 2019, she jumped into the world of SCUBA and fell in love with exploring Mother Nature  at new depths. Couple that passion and her personality (everyone’s favorite social butterfly who has a million friends) and is a social media master. 🤣🤣 * She found her adventure; What's YOUR adventure?

Hey Vic, I just wanted to give you some feedback from this weekend. Leah the mom, gave me a call yesterday and told me she can't stop thinking about diving. She was so appreciative of you being there Sunday, and just your calming influence and Aura, her words, of you always being there in the water right next to her ready to help if needed.
