“Life is a lot like marathon training. There will be hard times in life and hard times during your race but through marathon training, I learned to just keep moving and you will get to the finish line. Running has changed my life.”

I’m Brooke Jackson, M.D., board-certified dermatologist, avid runner, and budding triathlete. I am passionate about encouraging healthy living through movement and helping amateur athletes reach their goals by easing the stress and injury that an exercise regimen can have on you both physically and mentally.

I have completed 10 marathons and 8 triathlons and was on the board of directors of Girls on the Run, an organization that encourages girls age 8-12 to build self-esteem through running. I successfully started and managed a marathon training group on the south side of Chicago which grew from 40 runners to 400 over 4 years, helping turn couch potatoes into marathoners.

Through my own marathon training experience and coaching I have been able to share tips and tricks to help runners manage training concerns from rashes, to sunburns, to blistered toes and race anxiety, teaching them about sun protection, hydration, and nutrition.

Here are a few facts about me:

  • I have made frequent guest appearances on ABC, NBC, FOX, WGN news regarding dermatologic issues and has been quoted in numerous national print such as Self, O, Runner’s World, Essence, Ebony, Woman’s Day, Ladies Home Journal, Parenting, Teen vogue and Fitness magazines.
  • I am a frequent speaker for running groups on sun safety and skin cancer awareness.
  • I am a peloton addict
  • I met my husband through running. We had our rehearsal dinner in Fleet Feet Store in Chicago.
  • I am the owner of Skin Wellness Dermatology Associates, a private practice that offers aesthetic, medical, and surgical dermatology services using innovative, tailored treatment plans.
  • I am the author of Skincare for Runners and Child Of Mine: Caring For The Skin And Hair Of Your Adopted Child.
  • I love animals and now have a rescued poodle who is a mischief maker.
