Brooklyn is one of our technicians at Cowichan, and is a native to the Cowichan Valley, even though, she was born in Victoria and lived there until the age of 3. Vancouver Island is one of her favorite places to live since there’s always something new and beautiful to discover
Her childhood nickname was Minnie Mouse, which may have contributed to her love of the theatre. In high school, she received the highest theatre award, and even had an award named after her for outstanding leadership in theatre.
While she is directing Cowichan Secondary’s very first Theatre Alumni show, her other interests include going to the gym, yoga, dirt biking, reading and acting. She has one fluffy black cat named Cesar, who, unfortunately, offers no good stories as he’s a bit of a jerk. She’s glad to share her Hogwarts house is Slytherin even though they have a bad reputation.
Her goal is to become a Neonatal nurse in the NICU, and eventually become a nurse practitioner. Part of the reason she was interested in optometry, is that she loves that she can learn something new every day and enjoys a fast paced workplace. During her break, you might catch with her favorite snack: anything sweet paired with a bag of salty chips and a cold can of coke.
