About Camaron Brooks

Hi, I’m Camaron Brooks. My friends call me Cam (So, feel free!) I’m a former TV Reporter/Anchor who left small market TV News to start a family. I thought swapping the newsroom for the nursery would be easy. It was so HARD. I didn’t know how to enjoy the moment.I looked critically and cynically at everything. I didn’t know who I was without my title and paycheck. I also battled the baby blues (if not full on post-partum depression) without even realizing it. Everything scared me. I would look at my son and remember all the tragic stories I’d reported on. I worried I would drop him. Or that he wouldn’t wake up. I wrote as a form of therapy and because that’s the only thing I could still do to feel like myself. I needed to feel like myself.
