Richard Brown holds a Juris Doctorate and PhD in Psychology, and has lived and traveled internationally for most of his life. After spending seven years in Sao Paulo, Brazil, he returned to the United States nine years ago and began teaching at Bellarmine University.
In addition to teaching, he is the Director of Veterans Services at Bellarmine. A veteran himself, he works directly with veteran students on campus and has created programs to assist them as they enter, and continue to support them as they integrate, into the Bellarmine community. He also is actively engaged in the veteran community as exhibited by his involvement with Athena’s Sisters, The Veterans Community Alliance of Louisville, and serving as Co-Chair of the Mayor’s Week of Valor held each November.
After discharge from the military, he worked for the U.S. Secret Service providing protection for the President, Vice President, First Family, and whosoever designated. Leaving the Service, Dr. Brown worked in the private sector. Over that time, he developed an expertise in business analysis, marketing, project management, and strategic planning. He has lived in New York City, Washington, DC, and San Paulo, Brazil.
He continues to travel internationally, and has lectured in many countries (e.g. Zurich, Switzerland; Muscat, Oman; Sao Paulo, Brazil; and several cities in India and China).
He holds a B.S. from the University of Maryland, a Juris Doctorate from the University of Louisville, and a Ph.D. in Psychology from Saybrook University, San Francisco. His dissertation is held in the Harvard/NASA archives under the category of “Philosophy of Physics”.
