Our Team

Brooke Conway

President

Brooke received her degree in Sports Medicine with an emphasis in Neuroscience from the University of San Francisco. Her passion of neuroscience hit home when she had a stroke and was diagnosed with a Chiari Malformation in 2013 and underwent five surgeries. Although doctors had many opinions about Brooke’s condition, the one thing they agreed on was the fact that her fitness level saved her life. Because of this, she began a nonprofit to provide grants for other individuals diagnosed with neurological disorders to help them regain both their physical and emotional strength. Brooke is now working toward her doctorate of physical therapy and plans to apply to a Neurology Fellowship after graduation.

While in law school, he realized that his desire to help those in need could be better accomplished through focusing his time explicitly on charitable ventures versus in the legal profession. His legal and business knowledge are tools that he use to elevate charities to new heights. Society is focused on being “disruptive” in every category of life except philanthropic endeavors. He aims to be the Elon Musk of charity.
