After Kaylie Brown graduated in 2009, she left for TCC and Weatherford College to earn an associates of arts in teaching. After her third semester, Brown decided to pursue a different career. She began attending North Texas School of Swedish Massage.
“I thought my life would go exactly as I planned,” Brown said. “Oh, how I was wrong. I wanted to be married at 23, kids by 25 and be a reading specialist. Here I am almost 26, not married and a massage therapist and birth doula.”
After finishing school, Brown started working as a massage therapist. She continued for two years before switching careers and working as a birth doula. Brown went through ‘birth boot camp’ to train. Now, Brown assists women to have successful births.
“I see a huge changeover myself. Through high school I was very quiet and introverted. Now I am very extroverted. I want to help everyone in any way that I can,” Brown said.
During high school, Brown participated in theater and teen leadership. She currently plans on getting married, continuing her career as a birth doula and helping her doula business.
“Have fun and make memories while you can. High school is the easiest part of your life,” Brown said. “Don’t buy a letterman jacket or class ring. The minute you graduate you will not want to wear them any longer, and I promise your college will not care what high school you went to.”
