Brooks' expertise spans a variety of media avenues, from editing and publishing to writing and graphic design. In San Diego, Brooks served as the owner and publisher of her own independent magazine, wearing every hat from graphic designer and advertising salesperson to writer and editor. During her time as a managing editor for a suburban Chicago magazine, Brooks actively promoted the magazine to the public, as well as writing articles, editing copy, and designing advertising for the publication.
