BROOKE COTTLE

DIRECTOR

Brooke graduated from Weber State University with a degree in Health Care Administration, and worked as an administrator and regional manager in the health care industry.  While taking some time off from her career to raise her family, Brooke worked with other parents and community members to establish the Bethel Education Foundation. Five years of service as the President of the Bethel Education Foundation, co-chairing the Willamette Pride Project and chairing the 2012 Bond Measure allowed Brooke to create strong relationships within the Bethel community. She feels fortunate to have the opportunity to combine her passion for Bethel with her formal education and training in her role as director of the Bethel Health Center.
