#MeetTheTeam: Impact Welcomes Brooke Gastin

July 16, 2021

The team here at Impact PR & Communications is always on the lookout for great talent and, lucky for us, we’ve had the opportunity to work with several local college students and graduates over the past seven years.

And just in time for our next spotlight series where you meet us, the dedicated team here at Impact, we’re thrilled to announce our newest intern/PR assistant, Brooke Gastin! After meeting with Brooke, we knew she would fit right in. Join us in giving Brooke a warm welcome and keep on reading to get to know her a little better!

How would you describe yourself in three words?

Kind-hearted, happy, genuine.

What are you most excited about in your new role at Impact?

I am most excited about having a hands-on/sneak peek into what could potentially be my future career.

Tell us one thing about yourself that would surprise us?

I played on two NCAA Division 1 sports, field hockey and softball, at two different colleges.

What is your favorite kind of food?

Italian – I am a big pizza and pasta fan.

Who is your role model and why?

My mom. She is a great example of being a kind, delicate and sensitive woman, but she is also the boss lady, and always stands her ground. Her ability to balance between her feminine and maculine sides of herself is something I aspire to master.

What are your favorite Hudson Valley hotspots?

Definitely the Marist Boathouse/River on campus. I am a bit biased since I am a student here, but it is a lovely spot in the Hudson Valley either way. Also, I love Cosimo’s restarant and Zeus Brewing Company, both located in Poughkeepsie.

Favorite magazine or publication to read?
