Brooke has been successfully helping high school students with the college admissions process for over ten years. She has helped students not only determine which schools are the best for them, but also how to gain admission to them.
Through her own experiences as an undergraduate at Washington University in St. Louis (where she spent her freshman and sophomore years) and at the University of California at Berkeley, (where she transferred and spent her junior and senior years), Brooke learned invaluable lessons on the unique differences between the admissions process and the college experience at two very different types of schools, one being a small private institution and the other being a large public university.
After earning a B.A. in English from UC Berkeley, Brooke experienced the other side of the admissions process when she became the youngest member of the UC Berkeley Undergraduate Admissions Committee. In 2003, 2005, 2009 and 2016, as part of the admissions committee, she evaluated and made decisions on applications for UC Berkeley’s freshman class.
In 2005, Brooke earned a Masters in Higher Education from Harvard University, a program tailored to college admissions professionals. While at Harvard, she worked in the Harvard University Undergraduate Admissions Office, where she observed the Harvard College application process firsthand.
Originally from Camarillo, California, Brooke has settled in North San Diego County where she lives with her husband, Evan, and seven-year-old son, Teddy. In addition to helping students find their path and achieve their dreams, she enjoys traveling, music, the arts, college sports of all kinds, and (most importantly) mentoring students.
