BROOKE CHRISTIAN (FLIRTY GIRL)
In 2015, postpartum depression left Brooke searching for an identity beyond parenting and partnering. Like many, she felt a sexier self was underneath her other roles but no one was helping her, nor her peers, access it. Brooke decided to give moms just like her what they secretly craved: honest, open conversation about the struggles of staying sexy amid the craziness of a busy life. Brooke connects with women quickly and potently. Why? Because she’s just like them: a frazzled mom, a busy wife, a women who struggles with her post-baby body daily. Her blog, social media posts and speaking engagements produce an inspiring chorus of “Me toos!” from women across the country who are desperate to be heard, understood and most of all, lifted up. Having formerly run marketing & promotions at top women’s magazines like InStyle, Real Simple, Harper’s Bazaar and O, The Oprah Magazine, Brooke leverages her former role as a fashion and beauty influencer to not only change women’s sex lives but to change women themselves. Oh yeah, and she’s addicted to vibrators.
