Brooklin joined Redstone after graduating from Yale University with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and an Education Studies Certificate. While at Yale, Brooklin worked with a number of non-profit organizations in the New Haven and New York City areas aimed at improving educational outcomes for youth, through a variety of avenues. In New Haven, Brooklin served as a tutor and senior counselor with Leadership, Education and Athletics in Partnership (LEAP), Inc and New Haven Reads, respectively. She is also the co-founder and former co-president of the Yale Education Tutoring Initiative (YETI), an organization borne in response to the need for individualized education during the COVID-19 pandemic. By the end of the 2020-21 academic year, YETI had served more than 110 students in the New Haven and West Haven area, many of whom did not have access to individualized academic support.
Brooklin interned with and is currently the board co-chair of IntegrateNYC, a youth-led organization with a reputation of taking unprecedented action in its pursuit of educational and racial justice. In her role as an intern, Brooklin collaborated with educators, researchers, lawyers, students, and families to blueprint a pipeline for NYC students to enter the teaching profession. Brooklin also helped to design a model for restorative discipline practices. As a co-chair, Brooklin focuses on board development strategies, leading board education, assessment and recruitment efforts. Brooklin strongly advocates for centering the voices of those most proximate to an issue, recognizing their valuable insights and expertise.
A native of Birmingham, Alabama, Brooklin enjoys reading, biking, knitting, and hanging with close friends and family.
