Brooke left the private sector to work behind the scenes in Parliament to help pass the End-of-Life Choice Act. She is a highly effective operator who knows how to deliver real positive change in the corridors of power.

Brooke is qualified in international trade and economics and has been a factory worker and corporate affairs consultant.

Her practical and political experience has given her a deep understanding of the economy and the effect big government policies and rushed laws have on businesses and individuals.

She switched from being a Green voter to an Act supporter while studying economics at university. The ability for free markets to lift countries from hardship was a revelation for her.

She is also a committed social liberal, championing the right to autonomy over our own bodies.

Brooke grew up in Auckland with three older brothers, where her parents were small business owners.
