Brooke Malloy has spent her entire career working to make life better for Rocklanders, first at the Nyack Center and then at VCS as part of the Gay Pride Rockland initiative. Gay Pride Rockland was the vision that helped create the Phyllis B. Frank Rockland County Pride Center and Brooke was a natural fit as the Pride Center’s Founding Executive Director in 2016.

As a proud queer woman, Brooke and her husband raised their children in Rockland. Now, she is helping raise the next generation of LGBTQ+ youth to live proud, thriving lives as members of a multi-generational community.  She works tirelessly in the community, building bridges and creating opportunities.
