Brittnee Bond shares her experiences growing up as a Jehovah’s Witness and opens up about her decision to eventually divorce her husband, leave the Church, travel the world and create her ideal community that is welcoming, inclusive and accepting.

She shares her journey from developing work-travel programs for nomads to organizing events at co-working spaces across Asia. Brittnee also opens up about her experience navigating patriarchal and masculinity dynamics in the travel and nomad spaces, and explains her passion for creating female-centering communities where women can thrive.
