A clinical psychologist, Dr. Brown comes to this position with a strong background in program development, implementation, and management. She obtained both her Ph.D. and Master’s degrees in psychology and counseling from the University of Oregon. Her postdoctoral work in Eugene involved coaching, mentoring, and evaluating educators. During that time, she also developed curriculum and training programs and established metrics for program performance.
Since then, she has worked as a program and education manager at Washington State University, Mt. Hood Community College, and for community programs. She also serves as an adjunct faculty member at Clark College. She has over 10 years of leadership and program management experience, during which she honed her training development and implementation, coaching, and data analysis skills.
Dr. Brown’s appointment begins August 16, 2021. She will be working with the postdoctoral community, faculty, and administrators to build new, dynamic programs and to fortify efforts that are already underway. Dr. Brown will focus on improving the postdoctoral experience by addressing postdoc-specific issues such as enhancing career development resources, providing a robust variety of workshops and forums and revitalizing the postdoc onboarding program. She will also work closely with the OHSU Postdoc Society.
