She works closely with the conservation team and directs assistant conservators and conservation technicians in all aspects of conservation treatment, assessment, and documentation. Brooke’s expertise includes writing specifications, developing treatment plans, performing conservation investigations and studies, executing conservation treatments on painted finishes, and conducting microscopic analysis of paint and plaster.

Brooke continues to share her professional knowledge with the next generation through her participation as speaker for high school and college students interested in the conservation and the trades industry, and through a variety of professional development networking events.
She holds her BA in Art History and Italian from New York University and went on to earn her MS in Historic Preservation from Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning & Preservation.
