Margie Ann Brown
Tell us about yourself:
I graduated and left my small town of Carnegie when I was 17 years old. I did college in high school, excelled and attained the life I wanted at a young age. While my friends were going to concerts and dating I was hanging out at the nursing home with the elderly and with all of my neighbors that were elders playing dominoes and making pies. I started working at the local hospital at 15, not because I had to but because I wanted to and I also see my daughters with the same work ethic. Some of my hobbies include shopping, traveling and I’m also a foodie. I love to try out different restaurants.
I moved to Texas and wanted to be in the travel industry so I did school for that as well and became a travel agent and started traveling the world for 14 years. I knew at age 14 that I would never be a small town girl. From there I married, had 4 beautiful educated amazing daughters and then got into the law enforcement field working in CID until I left there to manage my youngest daughters acting & modeling career.
My best asset is that I have a huge heart and am a very giving person. My weakness is children. Sick children and animals. I love to donate my time to helping others. I am bilingual so I have done a lot of work with the Hispanic community. Working and taking in women that were pregnant and left alone not knowing the language and broke. I’ve given them my home and supported them until they had their babies.
One of my favorite passions is fashion. I’ve always been the “diva” In my family. Beauty routines, looking great and taking care of myself has and will always be my priority.
I am also a huge mental health advocate. I’ve been through many challenges throughout my life and have seen others that I know deal with mental health issues, a lot of family members and friends. This is something I really believe in and strive to help others with.
I feel like I’m half way through my life at this point. Things have changed a lot in my life and I’m embarking on a new exciting chapter. I truly believe in God and his plan for my next 50 years.
Influences in my life would be anyone that is kind, loyal, giving, genuinely cares about others well being. My kids influence me daily to be a better person. I think it’s important to not be so focused on material things because those can be taken away in an instant. It’s more important to focus on the connections you have with others and what impact you might and can have on them. Love, loyalty, honesty are traits I stand by and believe in.
What I would like to leave behind one day is for everyone to remember me as a fun genuine loving soul. A really good person to the core, that loves hard and wants to be loved the same.
