Brooke Trippel's passion is People. After completing her BA in Sociology, Brooke continued to be fascinated by the effect culture and autonomy have on a person's overall happiness and success. It only seemed suiting that she continue this passion with a degree in Human Resources from the Edwards School of Business with a focus on Culture. Now in her role as People Operations Specialist with Vendasta Technologies, she is truly able to see the positive effects an empowering culture can have on an organization's employees and its overall success. In fact, Vendasta was awarded Business of the Year last year by Sabex and with that came the growth of 100 people in a twelve month period, so Brooke has become somewhat of an expert in all things related to recruitment and interviewing. When she's not interviewing up a storm, she enjoys taking in live music with friends, attending fitness classes, and traveling the world with her boyfriend.
