Brooke received her doctorate in Physical Therapy (DPT) from the University of Southern California (USC) in 2006. She is a member of the American Physical Therapy Association and its Sports, Orthopedics, and Private Practice special sections. She is certified in Myofascial Decompression (also referred to as cupping), kinesio taping, and Personalized Blood Flow Restriction (PBFR) from Owens Recovery Science. She also received her certification in Emergency Management of the Athlete in 2020.
Prior to USC, she graduated cum laude from Duke University in 2000 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biological Bases of Behavior. At Duke, Brooke was a member of the women’s tennis team, winning the ACC Championships four years in a row and was ranked #2 by the NCAA. In high school, she was nationally and internationally ranked in juniors tennis starting at age eleven.
Physical therapy significantly impacted Brooke’s life at a young age, which stemmed from sports-related injuries she sustained in high school that required surgery. While many doubted that she would ever be able to return to competitive sports, Brooke spent significant time in PT, working with therapists to get back onto the tennis and basketball courts, which ultimately resulted in her leading her high school basketball team to the California State Finals and receiving a full athletic scholarship to Duke University for women’s tennis.
Brooke’s years of experience and success with patients of all ages rehabbing from orthopedic and sports-related injuries and surgeries, as well as preventing or delaying surgeries, have earned her a reputation for clinical excellence. She expertly combines manual therapy, exercise, and movement interventions to achieve dramatic results with patients.
In addition to tennis, Brooke enjoys skiing, golf, hiking with her dog, Pilates, and spending time with her family.
