The Chimes

Annelise Brown

Annelise Brown, Business Manager

Annelise Brown is a senior accounting major who loves hiking, weightlifting and coffee.

I was born and raised in a small town in Northwestern Washington, about an hour north of Seattle. While I was growing up my family took annual road trips to California. From a young age, I knew that I wanted to live in California for at least part of my life. Now that I’ve been able to live here throughout college, both California and the PNW feel like home in different ways. 

My time living in the Pacific Northwest taught me to love the wilderness and exploring, but I have always been drawn to the corporate world and would enjoy trips into Seattle to experience the city. I try to find ways to keep my hiking spirit alive here in California, but it is definitely a lot different hiking in a desert rather than a temperate rainforest! Another piece of the Northwest that I carry with me is my avid love for coffee and a caffeine addiction that is further enabled by my love of weightlifting and powerlifting. 

For a long time I wanted to work for a Fortune 500 company, but I wasn’t sure how I was going to get there. Eventually when I came to college, I realized that I really enjoyed accounting and directed my path in that direction. As I continued in that path, it became clear that God had gifted me to work in this field. I find a lot of joy in not only helping things go smoothly behind the scenes so others can flourish, but also bringing a faith-based perspective into a deeply worldly field. I am excited to be a part of the Chimes and bring my experience to help the Chimes grow and thrive.
