Brooke Anderson

A lover of complex problems, Brooke possesses a unique ability to flex between creating big-picture solutions and developing approachable implementation plans. Brooke thrives in translating concept to reality—always working through the ambiguity. She believes the journey is a greater reward than the destination. ​

Brooke’s healthcare consulting career spans strategy, pre-design/programming, operational planning, and transition and activation. Beyond the day-to-day work, Brooke never loses sight of her overarching goal to make healthcare more approachable and accessible at scale. She believes ‘nothing about me without me’ applies to patients and frontline healthcare staff, and engages them constantly. Brooke is intentional and a tactical thinker who can develop a path from A to Z alongside her Blue Cottage of CannonDesign colleagues. ​
