Barb Brown defines her adventure at Iowa State University as a constant process. She came to the university in 2011 to work for the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, where she was working with the Electric Power & Energy Systems (EPES) group at the time. In the spring of 2016, Brown joined the Department of Civil, Construction and Environmental Engineering as grant coordinator. Much of her work deals with helping faculty complete the grant application process and understanding rules and regulations. Outside of ISU CCEE, Brown is an active member of her church, where she sings in the choir. She and her husband Ernie live in Ames and have three daughters. They also have four grandchildren who keep them very, very busy.
