Though Brooke’s love for school always pointed her in the direction of becoming an educator, she found herself eager to impact the lives of children in a different way. Upon graduation from Oklahoma State University, she began work at the Oklahoma Caring Foundation, a nonprofit organization that provides children in low-income families access to preventive health services. And as a working mom, she hopes to show her daughter, Laine, the value of compassion and the importance of healthy relationships.
She advises those who are hoping to achieve professional success to look for opportunities where they are not obvious.
“If you keep your eyes open, you will meet people and make connections that will benefit you much later in your career,” she says.
