Mary Brown

After graduation in ‘87, I continued working at WC and completed my master’s degree. In 1996, I got married and moved to the island of Oahu, Hawaii. My husband Mike has served in the Navy for over 25 years and is currently a Chief Warrant Officer. Our family includes my stepson Ken (age 25) and our three children Abby (13), Bill (12), and Jamie (9). Navy life has been quite an adventure. After 2+ years in Hawaii, we moved to Coronado, CA. Currently, we live in Virginia Beach, VA. For most of the past 10 years, I’ve been a stay-at-home mom and taxi driver for the kids while Mike completed numerous deployments to Iraq, Afghanistan and other locations. During my “spare” time I volunteered for organizations such as MOPS, the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society, Little League and various school PTAs. After Mike returns from his current deployment in early 2012, we will be on the move to our next duty station in Augusta, GA.
