Before joining Every Meal in March 2021, Brooke worked for 18 years in Campus Ministry at the University of Illinois. During her time there she developed the skills and passions necessary to build donor relationships and motivate groups to meaningful action. She loves the energy and vitality rallying around a mission brings to individuals and communities, all while working together for the common good. She is inspired by the impact Every Meal has already made in child hunger and looks forward to helping that impact grow. She is excited to use this season of her life to helping create mutual partnerships between schools and community partners that want to make a difference in the lives of children.
Brooke lives in NE Minneapolis with her husband Casey and their dog Sherlock. The Twin Cities may not have the deep dish pizza she dreams of from back home, but she loves all that MN has to offer. Even the snow. She also enjoys memes, stand-up comedy, laughing so hard she cries, and traveling to new places.
