Why I Wear Green
Grand Forks is a beautiful town that is proud of their university. My passion has been to provide opportunities and growth for students, faculty, and the community – that’s what the UND Alumni Association & Foundation does. I’m happy to have found my home away from home.
Brooke connects with UND alumni and friends about how they can create an impact on students, campus, faculty, and programs. She is their concierge for providing campus updates, upcoming events, and informing them about how their giving has impacted students and departments. At the same time, she ensures that all UND alumni and friends can always call UND their home.
Being new to the Midwest, Brooke loves exploring North Dakota and its neighboring states. In her downtime, she enjoys watching the Food Network, keeping up with sports, golfing with her husband Clay, and spending time with their two dogs Bella and Brownie.
