Brook Knox is a native Texan, who joins us from the Katy/Richmond area. She grew up in the Austin hill country and loves the slogan, “Keep it weird Austin.” From a young age she had an interest in food and by the age of 13 she took over cooking dinners for her family, so it was only natural she chose to get a degree in nutrition. Interestingly, she started college out as an Aggie for two years before transferring back to Austin where she graduated a Longhorn from the University of Texas and started a career as a registered dietitian, and after a couple of years she went back for a Master of Education at the University of Houston.
Her career as a registered dietitian has spanned from the inpatient hospital setting, to the community setting where she helped develop a childhood obesity program at the University of Houston, and she spent many years in outpatient at MD Anderson Cancer Center where she developed a strong interest for the microbiome. This eventually led her to join a small biotech company out of UC Davis called Evolve BioSystems where she represents a product supported by years of research called Evivo which is a unique probiotic for infants. Brook is the proud mother of a tall and artistic 12-year-old, Riley, and is blessed to have a very special man in her life, Andrew Guenther, who encourages her to grow personally and professionally every day.
