I'm Louise Brown and I've been at Foran since 2006. I have a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration and Education from Sacred Heart University, and a Master's in Teaching and Learning from The Graduate Institute.
I spent six years as a Corporate Marketing Manager for a boating accessory manufacturer and travelled extensively doing Trade Shows and Corporate Sales Meetings.
My husband Dennis and I both left the corporate world to open two businesses, Milford Heirloom Image, Inc., and Photo Giftworks, Inc, which we ran successfully for 19 years. Both businesses provided machinery and photo gift fulfillment for major photo wholesalers like Fuji Photo, Kodak, Wal-Mart, and Walgreen's. Again, these businesses required extensive travel to meet with customers and vendors, and exhibit at trade shows around the world.
Both businesses were sold in 2003 and traded for a "quieter" life -- little did we know that there is nothing quiet about the business of education! It has been an exciting ride, and I can honestly say I look forward to being with my students every day. I appreciate the opportunity to share my business knowledge and hopefully inspire students to pursue careers in the business world.
Dennis and I share our home with our two sons, Nick and Noah, and three dogs, Henry, Murphy, and Lola, and two cats, Sid and Coco.
