Brooke Phillips - Marketing & Design Intern

Brooke Phillips - Marketing & Design Intern

Brooke grew up in Clearwater, Florida and moved to Bryan, Texas back in 2013. Having a passion for art since she was nine years old, she loved to play with paints and make a colorful mess of everything she touched! With her dad being a programmer with lots of technology (and less patience for stained carpet), she grew up on computers dabbling with photo-editing software. Dabbling turned into artwork, and artwork turned into a calling - she has decided to study her calling in Graphic Design with the new workforce program at Blinn College. Brooke is excited to start her journey with the Arts Council of Brazos Valley!
Isabel Gonzalez - Marketing & Communications Intern

Isabel Gonzalez - Marketing & Communications Intern

Isabel was born and raised in Clyde, Texas and has lived there her entire life. After being accepted into Texas A&M on a full-ride, she moved to College Station where she graduated this past May with a major in Anthropology and a minor in Museum Studies. Her fascination with different cultures around the world (past and present) implemented her decision to pursue a degree in anthropology with a focus in cultural anthropology. In her spare time, Isabel can most likely be found watching movies, another great passion of hers. A bona fide cinephile, she considers the Lord of the Rings trilogy to be the greatest piece of cinematic art in human history. Isabel has always recognized the effect that a work of art can have on different people and is very excited to start her internship in making the arts more accessible to the Brazos Valley area.
