Jéanne Brooks has been involved with the Arabian horse since her mother introduced her to them when she was just seven years old. That first horse was with her until he was 34 years old. Following a sales and management career with Xerox Corporation, Jéanne turned that long time love of Arabians into a career by founding Brookhill Farm in 2003. Brookhill grew from three personal horses to a full service breeding and training operation with more than fifty horses and sales on five continents. Jéanne was an active member of and volunteer for The Pyramid Society, and served as President of the Middle Tennessee Arabian Horse Association. Jéanne has her BA in Regional Studies and MBA in Marketing from the University of Tennessee, and is currently pursuing her doctorate in Organizational Leadership.
