Hi everyone, I am Brooke Brown-Pollard. I am originally from Virginia Beach, but made North Carolina my home in 1992. I double majored in Sociology and Criminal Justice while in college and upon graduating I moved to Jacksonville and been in this area ever since. I got married in 2003 to my wonderful husband, whom I dated throughout college. My career has involved working with at-risk youth and assisting them in making their life better. I worked at Eckerd Youth Alternatives as a Family Worker for six years and I currently work as a Therapeutic Foster Care Consultant. After working with children for seven years, I returned to school where I earned a master's degree in counseling and psychology and I'm currently working on obtaining my LPC. While I have various educational and professional accomplishments, I feel that my biggest accomplishment is my son, Sayle. He was born March 25, 2009 and I truly feel like the luckiest mom on the planet. He is my adorable curly headed treasure and his antics constantly entertain those around him! Sayle gives me plenty to write about! I am your typical mom but I'm definitely not June Cleaver. While I have found myself accosting people to show them pictures of my son, I am a proud member of moms against getting a mom hair cut, moms against mini-vans, and you will never catch me in a pair of mom jeans, sweat pants, or Crocs (all my shoes have high heels!) My life is extremely busy and hectic as I balance my family and my career, but I have found while being a working mom is extremely stressful, it is also exceptionally rewarding.

When I think of Disney, I think of childhood heaven, happiness, hugs, kisses, peace, love, and Mickey Mouse. Disney World, DisneyLand-the happiest places on the planet. Let us all hold hands and sing It’s a Small World and wear Mousketeer ears.

I have the useless ability to pretty much know every word to almost every song ever played on the radio. Friends love to play “name that tune” with me to test my frivolous knowledge and I’ve been nicknamed the iTunes genius. I can bust out lyrics from songs from all …
