Brittain Brantley moved a lot as a kid, but always called Tennessee home. Brittain knew he’d return to the state he loved and, in 2017, he and his wife did just that. In continuing his healthcare career in Nashville, Brittain can trace his professional path back to a village in Nicaragua and time as a Community Health Volunteer with the Peace Corps.
