Real People. Real Results.
I usually turn to Brooke when I feel stuck or need a trusted outside perspective or to shape a key strategic direction, such as defining how to activate our POC-Centered principles or how to get our leadership team to work more effectively together. As a long-time leader, Brooke has seen it all and none of it phases her. She gets the work done and helps you get *your* work done too.
Over the 10 years leading my organization, I've attended myriad professional development experiences and worked with plenty of coaches. Brooke is hands-down best-in-class. After spending time with Brooke, whether in a group or 1:1 setting, I always walk away stronger and better. She's an excellent thought-partner, knowledgeable and experienced, a big-thinker, and such a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend it!

As a relatively new Executive Director, I am constantly being pulled in many different directions. Brooke has helped me consolidate an action plan around the many different demands on my time and focus on not only what the right decision is, but what area in my work requires action. Her direct experience as an ED has been invaluable in navigating this role.
If you’re nodding along and saying: “Yes! Help me have more impact...”

I’m Brooke - lawyer turned nonprofit founder turned impact strategist and coach. I’m an unapologetic strategy geek, 100% Virgo & INFJ, self-professed template queen, and unabashed believer in the power of abundance to help us create lasting, positive impact in our world.
My social impact journey has been long and deep. I’ve always loved building things… putting pieces together into something bigger than the sum of their parts. For most of my life, that love has translated into creating and growing high-impact social change movements & organizations.
Over the past 21 years that has led me on so many journeys… I’ve been an organizer, lawyer, nonprofit founder, and leader…
I’ve been a professor of law, social entrepreneurship, and nonprofit leadership…
I’ve been a board member and board officer many times over…
I’ve built a successful nonprofit from the ground-up, managed a thriving team, and raised millions of dollars to support a mission I believed in.
Through it all, what ties my many journeys together, is my deep passion for creating positive social change.
When I’m not helping my clients & students launch and build exciting, world-changing organizations, I’m usually listening to one of my many favorite podcasts, building couch forts with my husband and sons, or pausing for a moment with a glass of wine, a cheese and chocolate plate, and a good documentary.
I'm excited to work with you.
I’ve taken all that I know from my 20+ years as a nonprofit founder, leader, professor & coach and I’ve brought it all together into a single program.
The Nonprofit Impact Accelerator is the best way to get the support and training you need to take your organization to the next level.
