Brooke came from the entertainment industry as an International Musical Theatre/Improv/Commercial Actor,
Red Carpet Host, Fortune 500 Spokesperson and Entrepreneur. She has always enjoyed entertaining, educating and engaging audiences, as well as creating new ways to connect them.
That wasn't the only way Brooke was meant to have an impact on this world, though.
An unexpected series of events that began 8 years ago turned Brooke's life upside down, starting with a car accident.
In 2015, 4 years into her journey and having been through a life-threatening injury, suicidal depression, and a whole host of residual circumstances, she began sharing online through live-streaming.
Her life now is about so much more than it was before. There is greater purpose, and all that was learned over years of telling herself to "babble on" (keep going, hang on) has benefitted people tremendously worldwide. The amount of messages and letters received stating that someone's life has been changed, or saved, as a result of having been introduced to Brooke and her story, is astonishing. Who knew being raw, authentic and vulnerable could have such a beautiful outcome?
That - along with what you're about to read below - is thanks to incredible hope, strength and above all, faith.
Following a severe and life-threatening spinal injury 8 years ago, Brooke’s health rapidly declined, eventually getting to a point of struggling to communicate and even breathe. Every day was a nightmare. After several hospitalizations, numerous surgeries and years spent housebound laying on a massage table staring at the ceiling, receiving 24/7 care from her partner-turned-caregiver and 6 in-home doctor visits per week that lasted anywhere from 3-6 hours, she began slowly improving and sharing her journey online.
The global, and amazingly loyal, Babblers community was then born and has continued to grow to tens of thousands ever since.
They have watched her beat incredible odds and successfully defeat extreme physical and mental health challenges, a chapter of life Brooke calls "From Hollywood To Housebound To Healing". She always reminds them that ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE, to babble on, and that when you wake up breathing, it’s a good day!
This positivity, strength and motivation is what attracts followers and keeps them interested in learning about what has worked for Brooke, what she is doing/trying now, what she recommends, how she has defied the odds, how these lessons can apply to them, where she is in her recovery process now and overall, what's going on in her daily life.
