MisCon 30 Attending Professional
Brooke H. Stanley, RN, is a modern day Bard. Scrapping, skulking and schmoozing are reoccurring themes in his as yet neverending story. With Bachelor�s degrees in English and Nursing as well as a fist full of apparently useless graduate work, he is both over-educated and very friendly. He has been burned, shot and driven for spymasters and U.S. Presidents. He has a lovely singing voice and likes both cats and dogs equally.
