Director of Operations
Mandy Brooks graduated from the University of Texas at Austin in 2005 (BS in Advertising and Business Foundations) and began her professional career at the independent bookstore, BookPeople, as their Marketing and Events Director. From there she made the leap into the nonprofit world becoming the Managing Director for Mainspring Schools, one of the most highly accredited Early Education Centers in the state. Her experience at the school strengthened her love of learning and understanding about how social/emotional wellness is just as important to child development. She now serves on the school’s Board of Directors. Most recently she worked as Donor Relations Manager at the United Way for Greater Austin. She is excited to bring her lifelong love learning and organizational skill set to Templeton Academy.
