Over the last six years, Brooke has been a volunteer extraordinaire for the New York Wellesley Club. She first served as membership chair, increasing membership by 100% in her first year and a total of 250% by the end of her tenure, and then serving as club president, steering the club to become a model organization that all clubs should strive to emulate. As president, her first order of business was to organize the club’s 125th anniversary celebration; she led the club through 18 months of intense planning culminating in an overwhelmingly successful, day-long celebration with over 400 alumnae in attendance. In addition to her club activities, Brooke served as the Durant Chair for her class, applying her organizational and goal-driven talents to form a committee of dedicated volunteers who garnered a total of 19 Durant donors for the class of 2003’s 10th year reunion. The time and effort Brooke has put into both the class of 2003 and the New York Wellesley Club have led to a surge in donations and alumnae engagement for Wellesley College.
