Born and raised in the Florida Keys, Brooke’s love for architecture and design was sparked by the natural environment surrounding her hometown. Lining the coast of the Florida Keys is the Great Florida reef, that houses a great diversity of animals, corals and organisms while also protecting the coasts. This underwater city tied in closely with her interests in the built environment and how the two environments coincide. Brooke took inspiration from the connection between the natural environment and the built environment. Influenced by this relationship, she knew she wanted to pursue a career where she could create a space that reflects elements of the surrounding environments.
These interests led Brooke to attend Florida State University where she earned a Bachelor of Science in Interior Architecture and Design. While her initial interest of design was sparked by the ocean, she looked-for for new environments that would push her to grow and offer new elements of place to incorporate into designs. Following graduation, Brooke joined CLB who’s approach of “inspired by place” fell hand in hand with her design passions. Away from the office you can find Brooke with her boyfriend and their dog hiking, boating, snowmobiling, and enjoying the seasons.BACK TO TEAM
