After many years in women's health nursing, Brooke chose to become a family nurse practitioner so she could help people of all ages work toward well-being. Per Brooke, “Well-being looks a little different for everyone. Our life experiences have an impact on our health. With that understanding, we can take a holistic approach to achieve well-being that addresses our physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and social needs.”
In her practice, Brooke emphasizes patient autonomy, informed decision-making, and healthy behaviors such as movement, nourishment, rest, mindfulness, and connection. “My most important role as a provider is to understand my patients’ goals and work with them to create a plan they believe in. Often this involves helping patients add to a toolbox of skills that will help them reach their goals.”
Brooke holds a bachelor’s degree in nursing from Wright State University and a master’s degree in nursing from Frontier Nursing University. In addition to being a family nurse practitioner, she is a certified lactation counselor.
In her free time, Brooke likes to cook, run, hike, and lift weights.
