After rising through the ranks at McKesson Corporation, a leading health care services company, Lesley Brown ’83, M’84 now leads the Product Support and Documentation/Training Development teams for her business unit, McKesson Health Solutions.
Lesley received the Philadelphia Diversity Council’s Most Powerful and Influential Women Award in 2013 and the Brandon Hall Excellence in Learning bronze award in 2011 for Best Learning Team. This fall, she will speak for a second time at the Philadelphia Diversity & Leadership Conference.
Lesley said her communications media degrees were a springboard to e-learning and web design, which guided her career path at McKesson.
“During an internship as a course developer for Arthur Andersen in St. Charles, Illinois, I absolutely fell in love with instructional design and course development,” she said.
Lesley and former husband Jeff Brown M’84 have three children, Rayna, Aaron, and Lauren, a senior at IUP majoring in communications media.
