Brooke is excited to be back with her Brookside family, this is her 18th year as the Coach of the Brookside Dolphins. She comes with a lot of enthusiasm, knowledge, and love of the sport.
Brooke began her swimming career at the tender age of four with the Michigan Stingrays. Upon her arrival in NJ she started swimming for the very competitive USA swim team, the Red Bank Aquarockets, located in Monmouth County. She swam for them for 14 years while living in Middletown, NJ. Brooke graduated from Middletown High School South where she was a four- year High School State qualifier in the 200, 500 Freestyle, and the 100 Backstroke and 100 Butterfly. Brooke was also a part of the 200 Medley and 400 Freestyle Relays. She was lucky enough to experience a “Finals” at States all 4 years. After high school graduation, Brooke swam for Rowan University and was a 3 year Mets Champion in the 100 and 200 Backstroke, a 2 time Captain and NCAA qualifier. She graduated college with a Health and Exercise Science degree and is a Health/PE teacher at Salem High School. Brooke ended her 20 year swimming career when she graduated college, yet that did not end her love of the sport. Brooke has been the head coach for the Glassboro High School Swim Team for 15 years and has also coached for TNT and GPAC.
Twenty years of experience in competitive swimming has provided her with a depth of knowledge in the sport and she loves to share that expertise with our Brookside Dolphins.
Swimming, her passion, has been a huge part of her life. Brooke loves coaching especially when the swimmers are having fun and reaching their goals and she knows that this summer will be the best summer yet!!!
