Brooks Carlson

I have greatly enjoyed a wide variety of experiences in my work career, beginning as a self-employed painter and ranging finally to a corporate director supervising the operations and engagement of 200+ employees.


Along the way I’ve discovered my love and passion for connecting authentically with others in mentoring, coaching and small group settings.  This is why I'm excited about the vision of Designed for Legacy.


I love my wife and seven children immensely, and I am speechless in gratefulness to God for all He's done in us.  I now find myself thriving in this walk with God, whether I’m meeting with others, fighting through a million competing priorities at work or reflecting quietly at our small farm homestead in southeast Michigan.
