Brooke joined Penn Carey Law in 2023, after graduating from the University of Florida with degrees in Political Science and Neuroscience. Throughout undergrad, Brooke was involved in speaking about, and advocating for, DE&I on campus and researched race and ethnicity as a predictive variable of prosecutorial misconduct.
