Brooke Is A Mom

Brooke obtained her ARBA judge's license at a very young age, was one of the youngest judges in CA. We all have known her for a long time.

Over the years, more younger judges follow Brooke's step; Keelyn is a case in point.

Brooke has matured, got married and at the Stockton show, she brought her 10-week-old son to the show. Here is a very happy Brooke with her baby boy Benjamin with her hubby Dave in the background.
