Brooke Vincent was born in Miduna Beach to Tamara Vincent. Tamara was only eighteen years old when she ended up pregnant by her boyfriend who was seven years older than her. Originally, she planned on actually getting an abortion since she thought she couldn't take care of a child, but after a lot of thinking, she decided she wanted to keep her child. However, Brooke's father, John Liu, thought differently of having a child. He decided almost immediately that he didn't want to have a child, so he skipped out of town. To this day, Brooke still has not met her father, and she doesn't really plan on it either.
When Brooke was growing up, her mother was often working at different jobs to earn enough money for herself and Brooke to live. They lived in a small, cozy two bedroom apartment for years, and Brooke thought of it as her perfect home. It was nice and simply, all of which Brooke enjoyed. Her mother dreamed of having bigger things, but was never able to. She worked as a secretary for a business in Miduna, but wanted to do more with her life. As Brooke entered high school, her mother decided she wanted a college diploma. She had only graduated high school and never was able to attend college thanks to Brooke, but she wanted to change that. Brooke attended Miduna Beach High School, while her mother took part-time classes at Barfield Community College. A lot of times, Brooke ended up having to help her mother with a few of the studies.
High school for Brooke was a fun time. She enjoyed herself way too much. Being a beautiful young woman definitely had perks for her. Her freshman year, she tried out for Miduna Beach High's cheer squad, but after continuously tripping over her own two feet the entire time, she decided that wasn't the best path for her. Still, she wanted to show her school spirit, so she joined the pep club. Brooke was always busy cheering on all of the teams for the school at almost every sporting event she could attend. She would help set up for parades that the town would have and the pep club would be featured in. With ease, Brooke made her way to the top of the totem pole of high school. She was definitely one of the most popular girls in the school. At one point, she was dating the football captain. Her senior year, Brooke was also voted Prom Queen, which came to no surprise to her. She had honestly been expecting that to happen.
After graduating high school, Brooke began attending the University of Miduna Beach. At first, she was slightly uncertain about what exactly she wanted to do, but she knew she wanted to work in high schools and with teenagers. For a while she began studying to be a teacher, but she changed her mind very quickly. She began her major in psychology. After her freshman year at the university, Brooke and her best friend from high school who was also attending UMB decided to move in together. Kaya, Brooke's friend, always wanted to live in Blackwood Mountain, so even though the drive was a bit long, they decided it was worth it to move to the small town. Brooke never really liked living in the small town all that much, but she went along with it. Plus, it was just fun being able to live with her best friend.
Sophomore year at UMB, Brooke attended a crazy party with alcohol just about everywhere. She ended up meeting this guy named Jaime Cabrera, and later on that night they slept together. At first she thought it was a one night stand, but after encountering him again at another party, they ended up sleeping together yet again. Soon enough, Brooke found herself over at Jaime's place or he was at hers. Either way, they always ended up somewhere with each other. After a few months of it, Kaya told Brooke that she didn't like Jaime and how he was just using Brooke for sex. Brooke told her that it didn't matter and they argued for a little bit. However, Brooke called things off with Jaime. Still, things didn't change much for her when she began sleeping with other people at colleges.
Towards the end of her junior year at UMB, Brooke met up with Jaime yet again. She began spending more time over at his apartment than her own place in Blackwood Mountain. While staying in his apartment, she met Wesley Mercer and began to get to know him. She once tried to teach him how to flirt with this girl he liked, and Brooke and Wes ended up making out with each other instead. Things between her and Jaime ended very quickly after her interest in Wes. Things also got awkward in the apartment since Wes and Jaime were roommates, and Brooke was moving in with them since her friend Kaya kicked her out. alk about how awkward it is to be sleeping with your ex-sleeping buddy's roommate. Anyway, she didn't really care much at all. After a few months of flirting and being cute, Wes and Brooke decided to officially start dating.
During the summer of 2014, Brooke met her new bestest best friend Holly Escalera. They met at the beach after some weird encounter dealing with beach towels. They hit it off almost immediately and have since grown basically inseparable. Brooke is also in charge of Holly's love life since Holly has no idea what the hell she's doing. Also, Brooke became friends with Sam Riddleman for a short time when Jaime was dating Sam. Since Sam and Jaime broke up, Brooke hasn't talked to her. During early winter of 2014, Brooke's boyfriend Wes moved out to attend dentistry school. This left Brooke to live only with Jaime, which was basically torture for Brooke. Still, Brooke was able to live perfectly fine. In March, Wes came back for a short visit to be around for the birth of Lauren and Connor's daughter. During that short time, Brooke ended up getting pregnant by Wes. Brooke and Wes were definitely very excited about the baby.
After Brooke's graduation from UMB, she was able to get a job at the Blackwood Home for Teens as a counselor. She quickly fell in love with her job as she got to know the teens and help them out with their lives. She would tell Wes about it all of the time, and he would tell her all about how he was almost done being a dentist. Soon enough, Wes began to tell Brooke all about how he was planning on moving out to the far away town he was studying in. He had been offered a job as a dentist in that area and he wanted Brooke to move out there with him. He believed it would be amazing for all of them to be a family. Brooke told him that she couldn't move because she already had a job that she absolutely loved. Wes never seemed to understand that though and the two began to constantly argue about moving. In August 2015, Wes and Brooke broke up. They spoke a few times since then, but it was mostly about the baby. Wes wanted his name to be on the birth certificate, but Brooke didn't want him to be associated with her son no matter what. Also, right after the break up, Brooke was thinking a lot about possibly giving her son up for adoption. She didn't want her child to be raised without a second parent. The more she thought about it though, the more she decided that would keep her son. She had plenty of friends who could basically be his second parent.
