Who or what is a Whitley Brooks?
Whitley Brooks is the best way to explain this fun, feminine fusion. Part Whitley Gilbert and part Freddie Brooks.
Ok, so who are they? Back in the 90s there was a popular sitcom that was a spin-off of The Cosby Show, called A Different World. When I say I LOVE and STAN for this show (that’s right, present tense), you have yet to truly understand my infatuation with this show. Two of those characters were my favorite and polar opposites: Whitley Gilbert and Freddie Brooks. Whitley was the southern prissy girl with an even prissier mom. Always looking for love and trying to find her way after having a sheltered childhood. (Some say my mother is a lot like Whitley’s) Meanwhile, Freddie Brooks was the naturally coifed, do-gooder hippie who eventually went on to law school. Quirky and off-beat, Freddie had a big heart and loves and fights equally hard. Put ‘em together and you get me!
Whitley Brooks is here to share my adventures as a 20 something married young woman starting out in my career and finding my way. But the most important part of finding me way is doing it MY WAY.
Sharing stories of post law school life, trying to conceive, anxiety and depression; I hope that you will find something useful, learn something new, grow or at least waste a few minutes at work. Throw in some of my rants and raves about music, tv and adventures with family and friends. Did I mention that I’m a foodie too?
