Hi, my name is Brooke and I am a proud graduate of Dowagiac Union High School. After high school, I attended Lake Michigan College and Southwestern Michigan College which prepared me for Kellogg Community College to pursue a degree in Dental Hygiene. Currently, I am pursuing degree completion of Dental Hygiene, a Bachelor's of Science , and a Healthcare Management Minor through Siena Heights University.


In my "free" time I enjoy playing with my puppy Margaux, crafting, spending time with family, and hunting in the Fall.
