Brooke launched her events career while a student at Iowa State with the ISU Department of Residence’s summer conference program. After graduation, Brooke became the assistant catering manager at Hickory Park and loved learning about food service. Then Brooke served as catering director at the Holiday Inn and Suites Des Moines Northwest before she found the perfect job here at the Alumni Center. Today she loves the different clients and variety of events with which she gets to work. The people around her--both clients and coworkers--are what keep her motivated. And it’s hard to beat the high she gets after coordinating a couple’s perfect wedding day! At home she loves playing with her children, who helps Brooke relieve any stress from the day.
Bry’s first job in events was an internship for Arnolds Park Amusement Park in Okoboji, Iowa. After that, she started on the student event staff for the Alumni Center, where she moved up to the intern position and, with a little good timing, was able to apply for and be hired into a full-time position after graduation. She also has experience in coordinating concerts and working with floral arrangements and other décor. She loves to use her free time to research event trends. Bry says she loves to watch her clients relax more and more throughout the planning process and event, knowing she has helped them feel confident. When it comes time for her to relax, she loves to walk her Golden Doodle puppy or play volleyball.
Angela has worked in the hospitality industry for the majority of her 15-year career, from cake decorator at Wal-Mart to restaurant supervisor at Champions Sports Bar and Grill to event manager at the Austin Marriott South. While in Austin, TX, she decided it was time to move home to Iowa to be closer to family. She landed the program coordinator position at the ISU Alumni Center, was promoted to Alumni Center event manager, then stepped down to a part-time event coordinator position after her first child was born. Loving what she does keeps Angela’s motivation flowing and the lists coming. When Angela’s not making lists, she loves to spend time with her daughter and son, read, and work in her garden.
