Brooke McConnell

Executive Director

Brooke has played a diverse set of roles at Pitney Meadows – supporter, volunteer, consultant, and Board member – since its inception in 2016. Joining as Executive Director in September 2023, Brooke brings a broad perspective and nearly two decades of experience in transformative systems change initiatives. Her professional journey, stemming from time in fund development at the Harvard Kennedy School, encompasses roles such as contributing to the leadership of a national reproductive access organization working across the Deep South, leading public relations and community engagement for the NYS Medicaid Redesign program, and most recently, overseeing the storytelling and brand management of Unite Us, a late-stage tech startup redirecting healthcare funds to community-based organizations.

Brooke holds a Juris Doctor from Albany Law School and is a program graduate of Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business New Strategies Executive Education Program for select non-profit leaders. She is deeply committed to her hometown of Saratoga Springs and has served on the boards of Pitney Meadows, Shelters of Saratoga, the Saratoga Institute, and Planned Parenthood. Brooke lives in town with her two daring and dynamic daughters, Nola and Tess, and furry friend, Nye.
