Brooks Walker developed a knack for multitasking at an early age. During her high school years in Windsor, North Carolina, she was a cheerleader, a member of the BETA Club, participated in VICA, and played volleyball.
She began her collegiate career at UNCW, where she studied Oceanography and Music, before transferring to Meredith College. At Meredith she received a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing while also minoring in both Professional Writing and Media Presentation. Her accomplishments prior to graduating include four-time Dean’s List honors, winning the Women in Science and Mathematics Logo Contest, and receiving the Langely Family Travel Award, with which she was granted the opportunity to study abroad in Copenhagen.
Brooks was a Sales and Marketing Coordinator for Dealers Supply Co. in Durham before bringing her talents to Brand Fuel. She’s a classically-trained pianist and has one beloved child—a Boxer named Ollie.
