The Always Adventurous Brooke Brown
By Susan Berman Hammer
Community Manager of the Honey Good Network @Moxie68
We invited Brooke Brown, one of our outstanding and adventurous leaders of the Honey Good Network, to tell us a little bit about herself and what she likes most about our Network. She is also a founding member.
As one of our true Network “Superstars,” Brooke created and leads our popular “Lifestyle” group, one of 22 interest groups in which members find connection, friendship and empowerment through their common interests and experiences. [During the past year, we have all learned that we do, in fact, have more experiences and values in common than we do differences.]
“What I like most about our Network is the awesome women I have met,” she said.“This includes dear Honey who is so open and disarming; I love it!”
Childhood, College, Travel, Career, Family, Adventure
Brooke grew up on a farm in Connecticut and completed her college years in California.Then, like many of her Baby Boomer peers, she set out to travel the world with a backpack and an adventurous spirit.Throughout her adult life, she not only has traveled extensively throughout Europe, parts of Asia and Africa, but also raised a family and worked for 15 years (with some time off for kids) as a scientist in the Silicon Valley defense industry before she retired at age 58. After retirement, she and her husband relocated to Kauai, Hawaii for 10 years before they moved back to mainland California to be closer to their seven grandchildren. In Hawaii, she paddled outrigger canoes competitively. Three times, she was part of the Island Champion crew.
Brooke and her Island Champion crew mates returning to Hanalei Bay, Kauai after a difficult workout.“Wow, it’s exciting for me to see this again,” she added. “Those were great days!
“When I met my husband in Silicon Valley, it was “love at first sight,” she continued. They have been married for 43 years, raised four children and now enjoy spending time with their Grands who range in age from one to 13. “We design camping adventures with our marvelous Grands, play golf and explore California’s amazing parklands,” the 71-year-old added.

- How she found Honey Good: “I found Honey Good when I was doing a search for senior women on DuckDuckGo.com.” (DuckDuckGo is a search engine similar to Google, but it doesn’t track your searches or store users’ histories.) “I became enchanted with Honey while reading her life story. She also lived in Hawaii, so we seemed to be kindred spirits.”
- When she joined our Network:”I joined the Network in early January 2019 when it was still in Beta testing.” Consistent with her adventurous side, Brooke said that she was excited to be in on the ground floor of the undertaking and is enjoying the ride as the Network blooms.
