Comments

Brooke Gibson is a hometown native from Charleston, IL, getting her master’s degree in Student Affairs. Her undergraduate institution is Eastern Illinois University with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology. Before Eastern, Brooke attended Parkland College in Champaign, IL, as a collegiate student-athlete that was part of the 5th place nationally ranked team in the nation for the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA). Being a psychology major, Brooke has experience with research from her undergraduate institution and performed the study "Impacts of parental marital status and conflict on social capital" that was accepted to the American Family Therapy Academy Conference in June of 2020, in Virginia, but unfortunately, was cancelled due to the COVID-10 global pandemic.

With prior research experience, Brooke is excited to conduct her study on a hot topic issue such as the COVID-19 pandemic to bring awareness to other individuals. Her current position with Student Accountability and Support handles incidents with students that are being placed in quarantine or isolation either on or off campus. Being the primary liaison for these students, Brooke has decided to conduct her research and look further into student experiences with quarantine and isolation amongst college students to gain information about their physical and mental needs.

During her free time, Brooke loves to walk her dog, Wyatt, and spend time (virtually) with her friends, family, and husband, Trevor. She is a huge nacho lover, loves to binge watch Bravo! TV, you can find her working out, and she enjoys baking. When she is finished with school, she hopes to move away from Charleston and start her professional career working with new students and families.
