Doctor Brooke and her husband Alec reside in the West Des Moines area with their dogs Aila and Spindle. Brooke is originally from Bancroft, Iowa and grew up on a family farm in the northern part of the state and Alec is a West Des Moines native. Their hobbies include running, hiking, kayaking, and enjoying local trails, lakes, restaurants, and breweries.
Doctor Brooke attended Simpson College, where she fell in love with the Des Moines area and decided one day she would officially call it home. She received her Doctorate of Chiropractic from Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington, MN where she graduated with honors. She was awarded the Foxworth Family Scholarship in 2018, a chiropractic scholarship awarded to one individual in the nation per year who exhibits leadership within the chiropractic profession.
She discovered her passion for pediatrics and pregnancy part way through her curriculum, immediately began pediatrics courses, and has amassed over 200 hours of pediatrics and prenatal work, passed a certification exam, and participated in pediatric research for the profession. She actively practices and teaches the Gonstead technique and teaches doctors and students about the technique all over the country.
Doctor Brooke is an active member of the Simpson College Alumni Association and mentors individuals who are interested in the chiropractic profession. She is a part of the leadership team for the Loop Des Moines. She and Alec attend Hilltop Church in Waukee where you can find her greeting a few times per month.
