Brooke Hessler, Ph.D. is currently serving as Scholar in Residence at StoryCenter, studying how co-creative practices, especially digital storytelling, can become more accessible and inclusive in online and digital-hybrid learning environments. For over 20 years Brooke has worked as a community literacy activist and educator, helping people tell their stories, finding more ways to listen.

From 2002 to 2016, Brooke was Eleanor Lou Carrithers Chair of Writing and Composition at Oklahoma City University. From 2016 to 2022, she was Director of Learning Resources at California College of the Arts.
