5 Things You (Probably) Didn’t Know About Dr. Brown

1. Dr. Brown’s first chiropractic adjustment was given by the first licensed black chiropractor in Texas.
While trying to figure out what career I wanted to pursue, I toured Texas Chiropractic College and was introduced to an historic figure right away, Dr. Romanuel Washington. A great man with a great story about how he got into chiropractic and a message that expressed the significance of the chiropractic profession.

I received my first chiropractic adjustment that day by that great man and the moment I felt the first realignment of the vertebrae in my body, I was a student of chiropractic and always will be.

2. Dr. Brown enjoys poetry.
Written, spoken, or in song I’m just a fan of poetry. I used to write poems back in grade school and placed in the Parish fair a couple of times. I think it’s amazing how some people have that gift of play on words that can inspire and touch so many.

3. Dr. Brown is a huge New Orleans Saints fan.
I, just like most Louisianans, grew up loving our professional football team. The Saints were our only professional team for a while so win or lose that was all we had. I bleed black and gold. My high school colors were black and gold, my college school colors were….black and gold.

In high school football we practiced in pants that were donated to us by the Saints. There was an extra sense of honor and pride just to wear the fleur de lis logo. Since living in Houston for the past eight years, I’ve grown some affection for the Astros, Texans, and Rockets. I’ll root for them and wish them the best but the seasonings and spices of the New Orleans flavor flows through my veins and the thirst to shout “Who Dat” always wins.

4. Dr. Brown was an athlete.
I would consider myself good in all the sports I played, maybe not great but everyone has an opinion. I played Little League Baseball on a team that ranked 4th in the state of Louisiana. I played high school football as a wide receiver and considered a Division 1 prospect by Louisiana Football Magazine.

I played two years of baseball and one year of track and field where I was an All-District winner and All-Regional participant in 4x100m, 4x200m, and 110m high hurdles races.

5. Dr. Brown likes movies.
Watching movies has long been a favorite past time activity. I used to consider myself a movie buff until I had a kid, which ended my movie theater days (for now). Since, Redbox has been my best friend. I like all types of movies, I’m a fan of a good story!

I would choose action/adventure as my favorite genre but not for the action alone, if the story isn’t great I won’t watch. Second favorite would be comedies. I wouldn’t consider these my top but a couple of my favorites include Star Wars (all 7), Bad Boys 2, Dark Knight Rises, 300, Love and Basketball, Inside Out, and Despicable Me just to name a few.
