As a new executive board member for AMA, Brooke took on the role as director of email and content marketing. This position entails writing new blog posts for the AMA website on a weekly basis, as well as drafting emails to send to members regarding upcoming events to attend. By taking on this position she was able to gain more knowledge while enhancing her leadership skills.
As a blog writer, she furthered her creativity skills by strategizing new ways on how to grasp attention from readers through her posts.
