Nathan Britton has over 20 years of professional experience in the nonprofit advocacy, communication and culinary fields.
After a career in grassroots advocacy in roles that spanned canvassing, high donor fundraising and serving as regional political director, Nathan moved to Washington, DC where he worked as a speechwriter and press secretary in the U.S. House and Senate.
