Born and raised in rural Michigan, Brooke has chased down adventures in the wilderness and in the mountains and found LIFE in the process!

From her first job in Yellowstone National Park, to Colorado as a ski bum/lift operator, to Montana as a wildland firefighter, and eventually to Alaska where she has spent the better half of her adult life immersed in the outdoors with a camera in her hand. Her enthusiasm for experiencing wild places and eating great food on a campfire is second only to inspiring YOU to "get outside & get happy!".

She has appeared on three TV shows: Yukon River Run on the National Geographic Channel, and ALONE season 4 & ALONE season 5 on the History Channel.

Her popular YouTube channel "Girl in the Woods" has over 400,000 subscribers. 

Get Outside & Get Happy!

"I'm a sucker for wild, beautiful landscapes and the flicker of a fire. The outdoors is a powerful force in my life- it heals me, challenges me, calms me, scares me. But most of all it INSPIRES ME- and I love sharing that! Whether I'm on the top of a mountain watching the sun set, or building a cabin in the wilderness, being outdoors feeds me."
