Heather Brooke began her interest in chemistry at a young age when she took a chemistry mini-course in 3rd grade. She later earned a BS in Chemistry from Lander University in 2002. Shortly after graduating, she obtained a position as a lab technician at Fujifilm in Greenwood, SC. After working there for 3 years, with both chemists and engineers, she decided to apply herself to a new challenge: graduate school.
