Why does Brooke participate in the ASHA Community?
I choose to participate in the ASHA Community to gain new and different perspectives on the assessment and treatment of the clients I serve. Over the years, I have received great ideas and resources and enjoy being able to give back to the community that has helped me grow into a better clinician.

What do you miss most about being a kid?
Being a kid involves so many built in opportunities to meet new people and experience new things. As you get older, it can become easy to settle into a routine and not step outside of your comfort zone. However, I'm grateful that my career keeps me on my toes and pushes me to seek out opportunities that sometimes initially scare me!

If you had a 60-second Super Bowl advertisement, what would you want to show a billion people?
As a result of some of the misinformation that is being spread about stuttering in the media surrounding Joe Biden's presidential campaign, I'd want to use that 60 second advertisement as a PSA to destigmatize stuttering and highlight the many successful children and adults who are accomplishing their goals while still stuttering.
