Brett is a freelance climate and human rights journalist recently transplanted from San Francisco to Berlin. As one of five 2022-2023 Journalism Fulbright Fellows, she is following the human consequences of renewable energy transitions in Europe. In 2023, Brett's reporting on war-stalled Arctic climate projects was also supported by the International Women's Media Foundation Fund for Women Journalists.
In 2021, she reported on climate and energy in Norway for two months with support from the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, the U.C. Berkeley Human Rights Center, the Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung Transatlantic Media Fellowship, The Overseas Press Club Foundation, and the Council for the Advancement of Science Writing. More recently, with support from the UC Berkeley 11th Hour Food and Farming Fellowship and the Food and Environment Reporting Network, she has reported on ancient water from California's Mojave Desert and on fisheries conflicts from the shores of Southeast Alaska.
She received her Master's from the U.C. Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism in 2021, and a B.A. in English from Princeton University in 2016.
