If you’ve never heard of Dave Matthews Band, a good place to start is the song “Cry Freedom.” In it, you’ll hear these words: The future is no place to place your better days.
Having seen the band at least 10 times (among the 100+ concerts she’s been to), Brooke Adams knows these lyrics well. And, as Philanthropy Director at Life Remodeled, she strives to live by them every day.
Brooke graduated from Central Michigan University with a degree in Integrative Public Relations. After continuing to work at the university in Recruitment and Retention, she returned to her hometown of Flint to join the fundraising efforts at Whaley Children’s Center. From there, she served as the Chief Development Officer at Methodist Children’s Home before arriving at Life Remodeled in 2018.
Whether it was through that experience, or her current Board positions with the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Flint and the Detroit Economic Club Young Leaders, Brooke has dedicated her career to protecting, inspiring, and empowering children and young adults.
At Life Remodeled, that work continues. Brooke is responsible for grant writing and reporting, recruiting and ensuring a positive volunteer experience for 6,000 volunteers annually at the 6DP, and stewarding relationships with 150+ corporate partners through the 6DP and the career visioning process as well as with entry and mid-level individual donors who are passionate about our mission.
In everything she does Brooke focuses on the challenges at hand, bringing people together to create places that make today better for the leaders of the future.
