Brooke Anne Milbocker is a disabled Marine Corps veteran from Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. Brooke started out flying unmanned aircrafts for surveillance and reconnaissance missions in the Marine Corps and has a degree in Unmanned Aviation from Cochise College.
With dreams of owning her own company one day, she then went on to complete her Bachelor’s degree in Entrepreneurship and Small Business Management from The University of Phoenix. Most recently, she has completed her Master of Science in Health and Human Services from Capella University with distinction.
Brooke has experience volunteering and working with disabled veterans, which led to a desire to serve. Following this passion, Brooke felt led to help fellow women veterans with shared experiences and attended a veteran’s entrepreneurship conference in Chicago where she discovered the Dog Tag Fellowship Program. She hopes to gain skills that will enable her to launch her own business serving the women veteran community impacted by trauma and PTSD utilizing health and wellness. Brooke is looking forward to participating in the program and hopes to one day visit the Washington, D.C. Dog Tag Bakery in person, so she can try a “Brookie” (brownie/cookie!)…FUN FACT, “Brookie” is actually her childhood nickname!
