“Joy is the feeling of grinning on the inside.” – Dr. Melba Colgrove
Brooke moved from the East Coast to downtown Las Vegas in the Fall of 2014 in order to spend more time in the mountains, travel more though the Western US, and to enjoy the energy of a community that is working to reinvent its future.
Brooke has over two decades of experience in business consulting on strategy, innovation and market research, plus expertise in commercial office leasing. Immediately after graduating with her liberal arts degree from Middlebury College, Brooke fell in love with the diverse challenges and constant learning of management consulting. While holding a significant amount of respect for deep functional expertise, she discovered the value she adds by bringing an analytical mind that can seek and process multivariate inputs and data, an astute ability to draw connections and parallels, and from the willingness to challenge assumptions. Having worked with companies of all sizes in a broad range of industries, her heart will always lie with the Entrepreneurs who are envisioning new capabilities and facilitating new ways of interacting.
In every encounter, Brooke strives to mark the moments of joy she encounters, to celebrate them and to spread a little more joy through her Shout Your Joy blog feed. She is a passionate advocate for Downtown Las Vegas, and eager to share her new home city with everyone that is interested. As past Board Chair of the United Way of Western Connecticut, Brooke has always believed in giving back to the community in which she lives. Brooke is also a certified Zumba® Instructor specializing in senior fitness and an aspiring farmer.
