Brooke E. Petit
Member Communications Specialist in Denver, Colorado
I build connections between people and groups showing them how to relate and rely on each other. I enjoy working on mission-driven teams and projects. My top five strengths from Gallup's StrengthsFinder are: Connectedness, Relator, Discipline, Maximizer, and Responsibility.
I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology from Providence College in R.I., where I graduated Cum Laude. I am member of the International Sociology Honor Society and National Honor Society for Religious Studies and Theology. I worked in the college's Executive Office of the President and as a student fundraiser for its Annual Fund, stewarding relationships with young alumni and current parents.
When not working in the social purpose sector, I enjoy learning about yoga, mindfulness meditation, data trends, roman catholic theology, and immigration reform. I value mental health awareness, storytelling, cross-sector collaboration, and everyday philanthropy. I desire to pursue my career, academic, and spiritual interests of (big) data science, mindfulness, conflict resolution, consumerism, public administration, and social change.
I believe all people deserve to be healthy and happy, and work towards that equity through organizing, imagining, and connecting. I believe in intergenerational relationships and value mentors. There is much I want to learn more about and am excited to see how my path unfolds. I plan to make intentional choices in my career and make time for thoughtful refection along the way.
