Anne Marie Brown
Anne Marie Brown was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, as one of seven children in the Kelley family of Outrigger Hotels. She now resides in Colorado, where she spends her time with her husband, Matt, hiking, snowboarding, writing, and chasing after two young children, Jack and Malia. Anne Marie majored in Creative Writing, Poetry at Colorado College, where she graduated Magna Cum Laude, and holds an M.B.A. from the Darden School of Business, University of Virginia. She built a career in the luxury travel industry, specializing in experiential travel consulting, before venturing off on her own to manage a portfolio of real estate investments and a travel technology startup. After her children were born, she began writing poetry to pass on life lessons to them, and for fellow parents about the ups and downs of parenthood. Three of her poems went viral on Tik Tok, with thousands of parents attaching them to videos of their children. Her poetry can be found on Instagram under @BrunchPoet and on Tik Tok under @AMBrownAuthor.
