She is the co-founder of the VIRTUAL Food As Medicine Summit & EXPO event which featured world-renowned nutrition experts, health & wellness exhibitors, and local wellness practitioners to share the state-of-the-science on health and nutrition and the practicalities and life-changing impacts of using food as medicine.



Brooke has partnered with Dr. Patricia Thomson to create Wellness20 which focuses on a global approach to the power of healing foods. Brooke is now thrilled to share her experiences, nutritional expertise, recipes, and secret hacks from owning a restaurant, with people around the world.
