Hi, I'm Brooke. Here's a little bit about me.

About

Hi I'm Brooke Hamilton, a kiwi living in Los Angeles. I am the sole Product Designer at Numerade where I solve problems and create empowering web and mobile experiences for 10 million high school and college students in STEM fields.

As someone who loves to keep busy, I am currently getting my certification in JavaScript Algorithms and Data Structures, and my Google UX Design Certificate and recently started a podcast with my good friend Kristina. I love americanos, butter and marmite on toast, going on rewarding hikes in National Parks and cooking up new recipes. In college, I was a D1 athlete on the Women's Golf team and my favorite place in the U.S. is Jackson, Wyoming.
