Me in a nutshell. A small nutshell.
My name is Brooke & I currently live in Dallas, TX which is where I grew up playing soccer and volleyball. I was recruited to play soccer at the University of Richmond where I had an amazing experience and career. After graduating with a degree in Psychology, I went on to the University of Virginia to get my Masters in Sport & Exercise Psychology. Since then, I have coached at the college, high school and youth levels. After my daughter was born in 2008 I became a pet nanny, which gave me my fix for furry friends every day, not to mention it was flexible so I could stay home with my daughter. I am a cat lady at heart and unabashedly so! My family moved back to Dallas in 2012, which wasn’t as easy a transition as I expected. The stress I was experiencing affected my energy levels and weight. At 40 pounds overweight, I turned to Jenny Craig initially and began running (which I hated). I fell into Beachbody coaching at this point, which helped me lose the remaining 20 pounds and have been helping others get healthy since 2013. I love being a coach because I want to pay it forward and give other women the courage to put themselves first. After having knee surgery in November 2016, I went through a lot emotionally and have recently decided to write a book. I’ll be honest, I have no freaking clue what I’m doing, but I know my journey will help other former college athletes making their way in this world. Wish me luck! Thanks for stopping by!
