ABOUT

Brooke has worked in IT since 1995 in Chicago after completing her CS degree from Northern Illinois University. She founded Tech Savvy, LLC in 2010 – the only woman-owned and operated computer repair business in the Pacific Northwest, helping customers with everything from building custom gaming computers to cleaning up a slow PC. Her non-profit, KidBuildIt was created out of a community need for complete computer science instruction that included not only computer programming but computer hardware knowledge as well. Over the past ten years, Brooke has been closely involved with hundreds of programs, providing invaluable community education and raising awareness about the need for STEM education in Idaho. This year, Brooke is bringing something new to the table and talking about navigating the world of being a woman in tech – and a girl gamer.
