She was a ballet dancer for 12 years during childhood and started modeling at age 15 after tearing her anterior cruciate ligament in a skiing accident. The serious ski accident at age 14 prevented Brooke from pursuing her dream: she no longer had the knee flexion to become a great ballerina. Her mother, convinced of her daughter’s unique talents, sent her to modeling as a replacement plan the following year.
