Brooke Shankland joined Salt Lake County Economic Development in mid-August as our new Economic Development Manager.
Brooke manages Salt Lake County's Economic Opportunity portfolio, working with community-based organizations, entrepreneurs, service providers, and other regional stakeholders to make investments that improve economic opportunity in the County.
Her unique background in entrepreneurship, business consulting, and inclusion will help her connect businesses with the resources they need to thrive and workers with the jobs and skills they need to succeed.
Before joining the County, Brooke worked as a technology consultant and corporate social responsibility manager at Huron Consulting and PricewaterhouseCoopers, respectively. Brooke has a BA in Economics & Philosophy as well as an MBA, with concentrations in Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship, from Northwestern University (go ‘Cats!).
Brooke is excited to continue her work in the social impact sector by working with divisions at the County and other stakeholders to address barriers to more equitable economic opportunity across the valley.
She lives in Salt Lake City with her husband, Pat, and spunky, 60-pound dog, Ace. They thrive on all the outdoor activities the area has to offer, including fishing, hiking, camping, and skiing.
Brooke also has a small creative business called Eudaimonia Studio that marries her love of design, philosophy, and sewing by designing modern quilt patterns inspired by ancient wisdom for human flourishing.
