She has also been a tireless advocate for special needs families for more than 10 years. She co-founded the ITAALK Autism Foundation in 2010 and remains president of the charity today. ITAALK stands for Interactive Technology Assisting Autistic Little Kids, and the charity has granted hundreds of iPads and communication devices to individuals with autism. Prioritizing the organization’s focus on education, Brooke has personally helped educate thousands of parents, teachers and professionals on best practices in the use of assistive technology for individuals with autism.

Brooke earned a Bachelor of Science in Organizational Management and has previously worked in the fields of business development and HR consulting.

Brooke and Lars have three children – Lena, Amick and Thoren. Amick has autism and has inspired Brooke’s advocacy for individuals with autism.
