Gretchen Brown is a Project Specialist for Battelle Education, working on the Tennessee STEM Innovation Network. The TSIN was established to promote and expand the teaching and learning of STEM fields in K-12 public schools across Tennessee. By reaching students who otherwise wouldn’t have had the opportunity, the TSIN aims to brighten the future for generations of students to come.
Whatever kind of work Gretchen does day-to-day, she always keeps in mind that it’s all about the kids. From kindergarten to jobs, she works to ensure that Tennessee students are college and career ready upon graduation, priming the state to be a forerunner in STEM talent development.
Gretchen attended Wright State University for a BA in Mass Communication. She is also a graduate of the Donelson-Hermitage Leadership program, trained by the Center for Nonprofit Management in Grant Writing and Major Gifts. She is also a licensed real estate agent.
Gretchen enjoys boating, sewing, and crafts of all kinds, including do-it-yourself interior design and home improvement.
