Brittany Kurtz is a born & raised native of the Beaches who currently resides in Jacksonville with her crazy pup, Herbie. She is an alumni of St. Paul’s at the Beaches, Bishop Kenny and UNF, where she received her degree in Business Management.
While at UNF, Brittany began managing her father’s design and build firm, Kur-Star Construction. It was here Brittany learned her love of entrepreneurship, design & the importance of quality service and ingenuity. After the tragic passing of her father, Brittany helped her brother start a new design & build firm, Kurco Construction. She is currently the Director of Business Development with Kurco.
During her years at UNF, Brittany fell in love with crafting as a creative outlet. As a child, she had always crafted with her mother & the flame was reignited once again. She specifically fell in love with fiber art; she considers herself a fiber art enthusiast as she is obsessed with all things patterned, colored, and textured.
In January 2017, she founded Firetrove to bring her free-spirited aesthetic to life. Her personal motto, along with Firetrove’s, is to Live Magically. Firetrove showcases her personal fiber art creations as well as her friend’s art & jewelry plus vintage goods and upcycled goods. She currently "pops-up" at local markets and events around town & is incredibly excited to be teaching Weaving 101 workshops at Flow Studio!
