Brooke Bigham

Brooke Bigham manages North Star Equity Group, which manages three long-term care facilities in Missouri, and her family farm in Mountain Grove.
Brooke started her career on Wall Street with Merrill Lynch where she quickly learned the importance of listening and learning from senior advisors that had a willingness to pour into her. She worked in a variety of positions before finding her best fit as a client and relationship focused Wealth Advisor.
Her career then took her to Morgan Stanley where she served as a Wealth Advisor for eleven years. After leaving the firm in 2013 in a giant leap of faith, she sought out new ways to make a difference in the business world. Ms. Bigham helped found North Star Equity Group after seeing a need for leadership and staff development within senior care facilities. In a rapidly changing industry she and her team brought their business acumen to a “slow to change” healthcare environment.
Brooke’s career path has taken her through multiple male dominated industries, which has taught her a lot about herself and the uniqueness women bring to the board room and business. She has taken pride in helping women become the leaders they were meant to be and enjoys being able to share her experiences and lessons (both good and bad) with other women in business.
