She has covered hurricanes, high profile court cases like the case of Reality Winner, as well as major events including the Masters and the Sugar Bowl in 2018. Brooke graduated from Concordia University Chicago in 2016 where she majored in Communications and minored in Journalism. She grew up in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin and has been living in the Southeast since June 2016.
When she's not at work, she enjoys traveling, trying new foods, hanging out with her rescue pup, and exploring the city. She's excited to get to know the people that make Atlanta so great. If you have a story idea, email her at email@example.com.
