Brooke VanSant

Business Analyst

Finance Major
Hometown: Camano Island, Washington
What are you doing this summer? Interning with Cisco’s Customer Experience team as a business analyst. I’ve been developing project management skills while building a cost model and providing financial analysis for the upcoming release of Business Critical Services. I’ve also been working with a group of interns to encourage teams to use their team building funds at Black-owned businesses.
What has been the most memorable part of your experience? I’ve had the chance to learn about the various aspects of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) within Cisco by talking to people in different arms of the company. It’s really inspiring to see a company as large as Cisco living out their values and doing the right thing by the communities they work in and the world at large.
