She describes the best part of her job is seeing the transformation of the first year CNA students when they move from the classroom setting to the "real life" nursing home setting. She enjoys seeing the "light bulb" go off for the 2nd year Health Careers students when they can critically think during their assessment, know how they fix/change a problem and use a differential diagnosis during their simulations that are given in class. Mrs. Brown also finds joy in the progress of our Pharmacy Technician students when they master certain levels of the program.
When not in her lab coat, Mrs. Brown enjoys spending time with her husband and two kids. You are likely to to see them at many APS sporting events, choir or band concerts, drama productions and many more! She and her family enjoy traveling the state of Michigan during the summer.
