Betty Moseley Brown

Dr. Betty Moseley Brown assumed the position of Associate Director of the Center for Women Veterans in November 2004.  In this capacity, she assists the Director in advising the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) on programs and issues related to women Veterans, and serves as the Lead for the Women Veterans Program.

Dr. Moseley Brown’s passion for Veterans began during her United States Marine Corps service from 1978 — 1992.  Her VA career, spanning decades, began in the Veterans Benefits Administration (VBA) in San Diego.  She served in various positions, to include a Veterans Benefits Counselor, management analyst in Compensation and Pension Service, and later working for the Associate Deputy Under Secretary for Policy and Program Management in Washington, DC.  She was VBA’s first outreach coordinator, coordinating outreach activities of five major programs and efficiently providing Veterans and dependents with information on benefits and services administered by VA.

As Associate Director, Dr. Moseley Brown served as the facilitator for VA’s National Summit on Women Veterans’ Issues—a major training and outreach quadrennial event for women Veterans, women Veterans advocates, and other Federal agencies that provide services to women Veterans, promoting transparent, interagency communication on issues impacting women in the military and women Veterans.  She has also been instrumental in promoting national awareness of the contributions made by women who served in the military, through outreach efforts and various Department-wide efforts, such as VA’s “Her Story” campaign and the “Faces Behind the War” DVD.  Currently, Dr. Moseley Brown is the Program Lead for VA’s Women Veterans Program (coordinating VA’s administration of health care, benefits, services and programs for women Veterans), and the Lead for the Women Veteran’s Campaign (which recognized women Veterans at five primary VA locations from June — September 2015).

Dr. Moseley Brown earned a Doctor of Education degree from the University of Sarasota.  She is an avid Toastmaster, achieving the highest level in public speaking of Distinguished Toastmaster in January 2011.  Dr. Moseley Brown is a 2004 Leadership VA (LVA) alumnus and 2009 graduate of the Federal Executive Institute.  She also serves as the National President of the Women Marines Association (a non-profit charitable organization comprised of women who have served or are serving honorably in the United States Marine Corps regular or reserve components).
