Ms. Texas, Joyce Brown CONGRATULATIONS to JOYCE BROWN, Ms. Texas Senior America 2019, and to Sarah Senter and her exemplary team for another fabulous Texas Queen!

Grew up in Toledo, Ohio. I attended college at Alabama A&M University where I received a BS degree in Electrical Engineering Technology. I was the first to attend and graduate college in my family.

After graduation, I moved to Texas. I worked at Texas Instruments for 8 years where I was a Product Engineer and Supervisor.

I  worked at Abbott Laboratories for the next 30 years where I held many engineering and management positions. As a manager, I was responsible for developing and empowering my employees which resulted in a high performing organization. At one time, I had 56 employees and had a $12,000,000 budget. I was responsible for the implementation of many projects. Abbott is a Medical Device company. As a result, we were audited by the FDA and ISO regularly. I interacted with both audit teams. The last 10 years, I was Supplier Quality Engineering Manager. I was responsible for the oversight of 300+ suppliers who reside in the US, Europe, Asia and South America. In total, I was in management ~31 of the 38 years of employment. I retired in March 2019.

Although I didnít have a role model for many of my successes, I became the role model for my younger relatives and other young women.

I  completed a marathon at 49 and became a certified Health Coach at 59.

At 59, I was overweight and in the worst shape of my life. I started attending boot camp and began eating healthier and lost 30 pounds in 4 months. I transformed my body and now Iím in the best shape of my life. This experience defined my Health and Fitness Platform. After losing the weight, I have more confidence. I am looking for opportunities to try new adventures, live my life intentional and to achieve Godís destiny for my life.
