Brooke’s love of party-planning and people helps her work with guests to craft the perfect event. Her degree is in education and she spent time teaching 3rd grade, but her passion for the wine industry brought her to Lost Oak when her family moved from Midland to Fort Worth.

Brooke will say the best part of her job is being a part of people’s celebrations and helping them plan their special day.
