Brooke Grossinger is a native of Wisconsin who migrated to Utah after marrying the love of her life, Mark. Prior to moving to Utah,  she lived in Washington D.C. where she earned a bachelor’s degree in Deaf Studies and a master’s degree in American Sign Language Education from Gallaudet University. Her depth of knowledge about ASL and Deaf culture is something she passionately shares and discusses daily. When she is not working, she can be found serving various aspects of the Deaf community or camping up in the mountains with her family. As a mother of two children, one Deaf and the other hearing,  she does her best to juggle her time with her beloved family and work. Brooke started with Sorenson’s marketing department eleven years ago. She describes Sorenson’s culture as “a blended family” comprised of Deaf, Coda, and hearing coworkers. In her role as community engagement manager, Brooke continues to grow both her own and Sorenson’s community network as she contributes to various organizations. Brooke’s ambition is to ensure all people gain a deep understanding of ASL and of the values and history of Deaf culture.
