Allyson Brown began her writing life as a marketing assistant at Starbucks. Her early work in brand management and product development gave her insights into what motivates people – the core nature of how we choose things that make a difference in our lives.

In recent years, her story-telling skills have extended to the world of outdoor education, as the Director of Marketing at IslandWood (an amazing, 255-acre outdoor learning center on Bainbridge Island, WA in Puget Sound), where she led strategic communications and public relations, as well as growing the critical revenue programs for the organization.

Now living near Seattle Children’s Hospital, Allyson was focused on spending as much time as possible with her family (Greg, son Wes and baby Hannah).  Allyson’s baby daughter Hannah was born with an undiagnosable genetic disorder that took her life very young (16 months old).  You can read about Hannah on her Caringbridge site.

  1. Allyson, I am very moved by reading all of your Caringbridge journal. While I do not face immediate issues of death and dying of my child, we all know that nothing is for certain. And there was a time when we didn’t know either if we’d ever find a diagnosis. It has turned out differently for us but Illness teaches us all the amazing gift of each moment, and that this is really all we have, no matter who or what is in our lives. I am always of two minds that I had to have this shown to me by having my child be ill, but that is what it is and in the long run, I am grateful. I am also very moved by your loving kindness and how you express yourself. I am glad you have chosen this path to venture down. Peace to you, Wes, Greg and Hannah. Suzanne
