Margaret Wallace Brown (’83) has been named by The Houston Business Journal as one of 90 honorees for the 2023 Women Who Mean Business Awards, recognizing women in leadership roles who have demonstrated excellence in their careers and community.
What’s one thing most people don’t know about you?
I won a disco dancing contest when I was a student at the University of Houston. The prize was a $10 gift certificate for Foley’s department store. I immediately used the card to purchase a Jane Fonda exercise leotard with matching leg warmers.
What is the most difficult thing you’ve had to do?
I bounced back and learned to thrive after my first marriage failed. I raised a strong-will, loving daughter, built a career and found joy again. While I would not ever choose that experience, I am proud of the result.
