Charlotte Brekkan

SACC-Seattle Event Director
Title: Marketing Assistant – Hilleberg The Tentmaker

Charlotte has lived in the Seattle area since 2008, when she moved here with her husband and three daughters from Uppsala. Despite having planned on only staying for two years, they fell in love with the outdoors and the beautiful city. She has a background in education, having worked as a teacher and principal in Sweden from grade school to university level, and at the Swedish School of Seattle. Before this, she worked in sales and marketing for a food and beverage company in the European market. She holds Master’s degrees in both Human Resources and Education from Uppsala University.

As an avid runner, mountain biker, kayaker, hiker, and adventure racer, her passion for the outdoors has provided her the opportunity to race in various environments, most noteworthy being the wilderness of China and Alaska. The most recent venture was climbing Mount Rainer. Charlotte has given talks on maintaining a positive mental attitude and on being a woman in an outdoor adventure community.
