Flora Morris Brown, Ph.D.

Guided autobiography facilitator, author, speaker

I'm a Certified Guided Autobiography Facilitator as part of the Birren Center for Autobiographical Studies.  I received a B.A. in English, a Masters in Education and a Ph.D. in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Southern California. I enjoyed teaching junior high English/Reading through university levels for 20 years in Los Angeles and another 20 years teaching critical thinking at Fullerton College. With the help of my husband, I earned the title  "Mom" to four children, one of whom has expanded our family to include 3 grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren (on last count.)

Now Professor Emeritus, I have published 14 books, the most recent of which is Redesigning My Resilient Life: A Guided Journal for the Pandemic, Social Unrest, Political Turmoil. Visit my author page on Amazon at http://amazon.com/author/florabrown to learn about the rest of my books. In my life story workshops, I share my love of stories and belief in their power to enrich lives through writing, sharing, and preserving life stories and life experiences.

I found that each  lesson was very informative.  The lessons seem as if they were written just for me. Each lesson was down to earth in its language and explanations. Thank you.

You know those list of questions that you have piling up? Need fresh advertising ideas or want to know what to say to get customers interested? What would you give to be able to check off your whole list of "Find Out How to..." and where do you find all that information? Easy.  Just ask Flora Brown. 

I found the information that I received to be of excellent value.  In particular she had helpful suggestions and links for further information on the variety of topics that I had questions about regarding networking, photo shooting, marketing etc...  As I continue to grow my business and have further questions or problems, I know who I can turn to knowing that I will get useful advice.

I had little idea what to expect from GAB. Although I was nervous at the start, the ease with which Flora welcomed us was immediately soothing. She instructed with both expertise and humor, imparted her knowledge and her own professional experiences, and encouraged us throughout the training so that I looked forward to each weekly session. I feel great confidence as a future instructor because of all that she instilled in us.

I greatly appreciate your teaching style: interesting, fun and comfortable It has been very beneficial for me to get started on this project that has been postponed for one reason or another. I will always remember you and the wonderful ladies who attended this workshop. We learned and cherished our life stories from one another. May God bless you.

I’ve really enjoyed this workshop experience. You’ve made it interesting and comfortable to be a participant. Although I love to read and I enjoy writing, I have little discipline in doing either so having a specific subject to address and a need to be concise was an excellent learning experience.. . Thank you Dr. Brown for sharing your time and knowledge with us so patiently and with such good humor. I’ve appreciate it very much.
