In 2017, she was one of 12 journalists from the United States selected to take part in an all-expense-paid fellowship called the RIAS German-American Exchange Program. She spent two weeks in Germany and Belgium meeting other journalists around the globe. While there she also spent time with key members of German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s team and took part in seminars at the U.S. Embassy in Berlin, the European Commission, and NATO.
Brooke loves doing volunteer work in the community. She spent two years on the board of directors for the YWCA Alexandria-Pineville.
In her spare time, she loves to travel abroad.
