PROGRAM COORDINATOR, MATERNAL AND INFANT HEALTH
Gabrielle Brown serves as the Program Coordinator for the Maternal and Infant Health program for Black Women for Wellness.
She was raised in Leimert Park and her interests in Reproductive/Women’s Health started in high school when she became a peer advocate for a local health organization in South Central Los Angeles. While there, a seed was planted and has grown into her personal mission which is to provide health education, resources and empowerment to women of color.
She earned her Bachelor’s degree in Health Administration from California State University, Northridge and her Masters degree in Public Administration from California State University, Long Beach. Due to her experience working closely with the community in South Central, much of her academic research focused on the health disparities and inequalities that Black people experience in Los Angeles.
Gabrielle previously worked within the UCLA Health system for 7 years and has a great amount of administrative and program planning/coordination experience. Her graduate program heavily focused on non-profit sector work and she made it a priority to transfer all the knowledge and skills she received from working in large organizations into her community.
In her free time, Gabrielle loves making jewelry, trying new foods, being in nature, going on hikes, going to the beach, listening to music, and being surrounded by family and friends.
