Board of Advisors

Brett came to Hives for Heroes through a friendship while completing his professional MBA from Rice University – Jones Graduate School of Business with HFH founder, Steve Jimenez. His alignment with the mission of helping people connect and find purpose through nature and holistic paths is the cloth from which he was cut.

Born and raised in a small Dutch village in Oostburg, Wisconsin, Brett grew up surrounded by nature. He is married to Lucia and together, they are raising a baby boy in Houston, Texas. As a family, they strive to live consistently in gratitude and service.

Besides the MBA from Rice University, Brett has degrees from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Carthage College. He has worked for and aided many unique enterprises spanning the tech, wellness, real estate, specialty chemicals, intelligence, and finance industries which have allowed him a breadth of experience and deeply rooted connections.

His goals for Hives for Heroes are to open the aperture of possibility and impact the organization’s potential on a global scale through partnerships with enterprises that share the same goals in team building, conservation, and serving the veteran community.

Brett practices and teaches Yoga and is a 10-year, 500-hour master who regularly travels, loves scuba diving, and fishing. He is a dog-lover, new beekeeper, and outdoorsman. He has visited 56 countries and loves unconventional cultural experiences. His interests lie beyond this as he continually strives to help people unlock their full potential through energy optimization, movement, and biohacking.

We are deeply grateful for the impact Brett has had and continues to instill on Hives for Heroes. His love of people and natural wellness is at the root of our organization.
