In 2013, she left the company to work for her family’s business, Baker Construction & Development. 

In her seven years with the company, she has helped bring in nearly $80,000,000 of new business while also helping the company grow into the hospitality and multifamily sectors. Brooke loves working with her mentor/Dad, Barry Baker- President/CEO, and is honored to be working for a company her grandparents started in 1951.

Brooke is married to Steve, an orthopedic trauma sales representative, and they welcomed their daughter, London, on St. Patrick’s Day in 2020. Brooke and Steve have a passion for travel, golf, and hanging out in sweatpants at home as often as possible.  Those that know Brooke note her zest for life, ability to make people around her feel comfortable, and her corny sense of humor she inherited from her Dad.
