Brooke attended Florida Southwestern Collegiate High School and graduated with her Associate's Degree and high school diploma in 2015. Brooke has been attending Florida Gulf Coast University since the fall of 2015 pursuing a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology. In the fall of 2016, Brooke will begin my senior year and plans to graduate from college in the summer of 2017. Brooke wishes to continue her education even further once she receives her degree.
