a note from Brooke:
Having lived in seven states from Texas to the Carolinas and California, I am proud to call Ann Arbor home.
We are a people that embrace diversity of thought and experience. We celebrate the arts and the cultural institutions that have made our town a great place to raise a family, or be a grown up.
We challenge the status quo. We advocate for minorities and those who are under-represented. We push for creativity in our workplaces and opportunities for the education of people from all backgrounds and of all ages.
I believe in our collective impact. Our entrepreneurial spirit.
I am proud to bridge the gaps and tell our story.
As Founder and CEO of Engage, Brooke specializes in connecting individuals with opportunity by introducing them to people they wouldn’t have otherwise met. She is setting a new standard in professional networking and community building by helping individuals meaningfully diversify their networks. Her commitment to supporting individuals driven to participate in their communities has attracted national attention.
Brooke’s people-focused career started with a degree in Psychology. She went on to sell women’s clothing, and then sell leadership and business acumen programs to executives. She realized she had some of her own business acumen and expanded the operations of her father’s executive search firm before taking a few years off to gain some serious life experience as the mother of an infant child who has now survived leukemia.
After moving to Ann Arbor four years ago, Brooke’s work focused on community and employee engagement within the tech sector. She realized that her unique knack for human connection could be leveraged in a way that’s causing a paradigm shift in networking, recruiting, and the economic impact that can be driven by a social enterprise.
