Brant Boatwright

Brant Boatwright

Resident Fixer

A semi-retired aficionado of fine motorsport vehicles and every tool known to mankind, Brant is much more than a maintenance coordinator. We call him the “resident fixer” because all he needs to say is “I fix things.” Sometimes he fixes wells or doors, but often time he’s repairing hearts. Brant brings a lot of heart to every task and never stops looking for opportunities to sow into our team and our tribe!
