CEO/Designer at Brooks Homes
Graduation year: 2021
SJMC major: Master of Arts in Communication
What your business does: We help our clients bring their dream home to life from start to finish. We specialize in custom new construction and historic renovations.
What inspired you to start your business: I grew up watching and helping my dad in real estate and understood how real estate can provide generational wealth. After having two children of my own I wanted to be able to provide a strong foundation for them and all the generations that come after them. I also just really love what I do! Even when I’m not working, I’m working.
How are you using what you learned in the SJMC in your job? In the masters program we learned so much about social media and how to leverage it to advance and market your business. I have used those skill across platforms and even our company website. I was also able to create a brand kit that is recognizable and distinct in the industry.
