Broocks was raised in an accent-neutral CT suburb an hour from NYC. Her sense of humor is one of her strongest attributes and greatest blessings. She considers herself a continuing education junkie, rich in intellectual curiosity. She has a passion for language and the power of a well-chosen word/phrase.
Broocks got her degree in the Mid-Atlantic earning a BA in Communications with a French minor. While in LA, she produced a highly popular talk radio show and served as part-time anchor for the Midday News on KPFK. She has an earthy quality and Nature is her church.
She has well-honed critical thinking skills, attention to detail and is as analytical as she is creative. These attributes serve the various demands of VO work well. Often complimented for her vocabulary, she is articulate and well-spoken, while at the same time, a strong mimic able to evoke many different characters. She loves to randomly insert funny movie quotes into conversation and generally seeks to make herself and others laugh.
A natural storyteller, she has been acting, singing (mezzo-soprano) and writing since childhood. She is also a comedian (improv, stand-up and sketch).

"I’ve directed Broocks Willich in various projects and have found her to be reliable, professional and talented. Her intelligence is a great help, too - when trying to get to the meat of the matter - and I am often agreeing to her suggestions, when a script adjustment might lead to a more compelling performance."
