Brooke joined Foundation Engineering in 1998 following the completion of her MS degree that focused on Quaternary Geology in Seaside, Oregon.  Initially, hired to manage the soils testing laboratory, Brooke transitioned out of her position in 1999 following an increased demand for a project geologist.  This change allowed Brooke to pursue geology and perform geotechnical explorations including exploratory drilling and wire-line coring logging, instrumentation installation and monitoring, landslide mapping, and reconnaissance geologic mapping. 

Brooke is Foundation Engineering's recognized expert for exploration management, logging, and quality control.  Her geologic work includes background reviews and literature searches, compiling technical information, developing subsurface exploration plans that often include difficult or remote access, creating work and safety plans, and developing traffic control plans.  

Brooke is responsible for the review of soil and rock descriptions, preparation and peer review of final boring and test pit logs and the preparation of geologic cross‑sections.  She also co-authors reports focusing on subsurface conditions, geology and faulting, and site-specific seismic hazard studies.
