She is also a longtime media ambassador to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, visiting the Memphis facility several times. After receiving life-saving blood transfusions herself, Brooke became a vocal advocate for blood donation. She has also been a champion of mental health awareness.

She was also awarded the Colorado Association of Black Journalists Scribes in Excellence Award and the Society of Professional Journalists Bill Stout Award for breaking news reporting.
