Brook Bailey is an attorney at Polsinelli, where she has practiced commercial real estate law since 2005. She feels strongly about volunteering time and giving back to those in need in her community, including being a “mock interviewer” at the Women’s Employment Network, serving breakfast to the hungry at the Catholic Charities program, Morning Glory Café, and logging many pro bono hours for the regional Presbyterian Church, as well for as the Covenant Network, which advocates for the inclusion of LGBTQ+ Presbyterians in the church. During her service with the Kansas City Chamber of Commerce Centurions Program she logged over 150 service hours, organized a task force on law and justice in the Kansas City area, and attended hours of programming on what makes this community so great and confronting the challenges that we continue to face. Brook graduated from Grinnell College in 1998, and got her J.D. from Loyola University Chicago in 2002. In her free time she enjoys hanging out with her 14-year-old twin girls, Nora and Tessa, reading good books, cooking strange foods, and being outdoors.
