Brooke Fortson

Marketing Specialist

Hi, I’m Brooke Fortson. I’m a wife, mother and marketing guru who runs on coffee, Skittles and laughter. I graduated from NC State University in 2003 with a B.S. in Business Management and a concentration in Marketing. Before coming to SAS, I worked for a gourmet candy company, a newspaper publisher and a real estate boutique. I am now a marketing specialist in the SAS Americas Marketing and Support division, focusing on the promotion of data management and Hadoop. I’m lucky to have the opportunity to do what I love best, every day: communicate great ideas in fresh, unexpected ways. My favorite color is green, my best dance move is the Sprinkler and my happy song is “Boogie Shoes” by K.C. and the Sunshine Band. That’s my story.

      Hi Tom,
      Thanks for the note. Not sure what the issue might be, but I'd be happy to look into it. The video is working for me, though. If you try it again, could you tell me what Browser you're using and any message you get? I'll also try it from home to see if it still works there. Thanks again. Larry
