Brooke was born into senior living as her family owned and operated a community founded by her grandfather located in the Chicago suburbs. After graduating from Wheaton College (Illinois) where she obtained a degree in Photography, Graphic Design and Creative Writing, she joined her father and brother in the family business as the community’s Marketing Director. She continued to grow into an executive leadership role as a Licensed Nursing Home Administrator. Through Medicare certification, JCAHO accreditation, and a multi-million-dollar therapy gym addition, she transformed the family business from a traditional “nursing home” to the top-performing and revenue-generating post-acute rehab center in the state of Illinois. Though her family sold the business in 2015, Brooke continues to be faithfully committed to dynamic growth and surpassing service standards in the senior living industry.
In addition to her skilled nursing experience, she has served as the National Director of Admissions and Customer Experience for Covenant Living, one of the nation’s largest non-profit providers, as well as the Vice President of Sales and Marketing for both Radiant Senior Living and Oakmont Senior Living. Brooke is also the Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Belong Magazine, a publication for female creatives and entrepreneurs.
Brooke has been married to her college sweetheart Caleb for 23 years and they attend Life Bible Fellowship Church. They have three children, Sophia, Auden, and Hadley.
