Dr. Brooks became interested in optometry when he received his first pair of glasses in second grade. While completing his undergraduate degree in biology at Utah Valley University, he worked as an optician. He then went on to earn his Doctorate of Optometry from the Arizona College of Optometry. Before joining the Mill Creek Family Eye Center team, Dr. Brooks worked in a pediatric eye clinic with an emphasis on binocular vision disorders.
Dr. Brooks currently resides in Lynwood with his two daughters, not too far from where he grew up in Brewster, Washington. In his free time, he enjoys camping, white water rafting, reading, and playing board games.
