Advocacy work: Brown has focused on horse welfare issues for a number of years, leading an online community that has raised more than $1.5m.
Industries: The two industries in which Brown has worked are the MBA Admissions Industry (at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School, the University of Delaware, Clear Admit Consulting, as well as teaching for the Graduate Management Admissions Council’s Professional Development Program) and the Horse Racing Industry (author of a book, leading welfare advocate, and exercise rider).
