Active as a guest conductor, teacher, and clinician, she has been a juror for the Eric Ericson conducting competition in Sweden; she has conducted, given master classes, taught, and adjudicated in North and South America, Europe, and Asia. She has served on the faculties of Smith and Amherst Colleges, and was director of choral music at the State University of New York at Stony Brook. Brooks was cited by the Yale School of Music for cultural leadership in music, and has received alumni awards for distinguished work in her field from both Mount Holyoke College and Temple University.
