Margo Brookfield

Managing Director of Student Programming and Operations

Margo was born and raised in the Midwest but has spent most of the past decade enjoying the beauty and expanse of the West Coast. She developed her deep passion for experiential and outdoor education through early experiences abroad, which led her to study International Comparative Development in college with a focus on francophone Africa. Margo started with ARCC as a trip leader in 2015, and joined the team full time in the office after leading numerous summer and gap programs for ARCC. She could not be more thrilled to continue supporting students in their journey to realize their potential, learn through travel and open their eyes to all the world has to offer.

What are you passionate about?

I am of course passionate about travel and adventure, but I also have a deep love for cooking (particularly my mom’s family recipes), learning languages, experiencing just about anything outdoors, and spending time with friends and family.

What’s on your bucket list?

Despite having led two separate trips to Tanzania through ARCC, I have always had a dream to summit Mount Kilimanjaro and reach the “roof of Africa”. Therefore this is still one of the top on my bucket list!

What is your favorite place to have visited?

I think one of my favorite places I have ever been is Guatemala. The beauty of the landscape, the richness of the culture, the amazing food, and the resiliency of the people have stuck with me for years and I look forward to the day that I can go back and rediscover this incredible country!
