Meet Galanda A. Brooker.

Galanda A. Brooker (she/her/hers) — by the way, the “A” stands for “Annette” which means grace, something Galanda strives to give in all of her interactions — has been a project manager consultant at Tuck since early 2023. However, if you ask her friends and family what she does, you’ll get a plethora of answers including: gardening guru, emotional awareness coach, and reiki master.

Galanda’s purpose is to support organizations in the role of a coach or project manager to help them move towards their goals. She’s taking 20+ years of working in technology/education and shifting it to provide services that are more human centered rather than technology centered. “Project management is one of the areas where significant positive impact can be increased through awareness and emotional intelligence. Team members who are emotionally aware, resilient, and regulated are the current X-factor to company success.”

Her list of accomplishments goes on and on but just to name a few: Galanda is PMP and Security+ certified, an ICF Trained Coach, a Certified Meditation Teacher, and Certified in Adult and Youth Mental First Aid.

Galanda was born in California, but has lived in Michigan, Texas, Tennessee and now resides in Maryland. Outside of work, Galanda is quite in tune with nature. She’s practically an expert on plants — ask her about indoor or outdoor plants. Galanda also enjoys hiking, whether in a city or off the beaten path.
