About Brooke

Self proclaimed visionary, math nerd, business consultant and writer, Brooke Bresnan Hilton is a highly ambitious research analyst and institutional financial services sales professional in transition from her role as an independent business development, digital and social media creator/consultant (focused on the healthcare industry), to trying her luck as a mental health tech entrepreneur (once again). This time... I think the idea can knock the cover off the ball.

Instilled with a sincere passion to help people and to make individuals happy on a daily basis, a fervent love of statistics, all types of writing projects, market and data analysis, as well as a natural ability to increase lead generation and business development with her genuine charm, Ms. Hilton hopes to spark positive social change and innovation throughout the world using her positive outlook on life, insurmountable amount of energy, inherited intelligence, drive to succeed and her great love to develop strategic plans and groundbreaking initiatives.
