Passionate and hardworking, Jean Brannon has worn many hats over the course of her career. She started as a nurse and nursing educator, holding positions at places like the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and the Alamo County College District. During this time, she also taught history and performed as a stand-up comic. Ms. Brannon loved working with students and getting them excited for their future in the field. When her mother got sick, however, she decided to retire to focus on caring for her. She discovered that real estate would allow her to set her own flexible schedule, perfect for her situation, so she opened Brannon Properties, LLC. She remains there to this day, and works with both business and residential properties.
Ms. Brannon considers some of her greatest accomplishments to be obtaining a patent for the Sa-Mitch patient hospital gown and a copyright for the Brannon Life Contentment Scale. She was also proud of writing for newspapers, college publications, and other sources. Moving forward, Ms. Brannon would like to write a book. Her achievements were highlighted in four volumes of Who’s Who in America and one of Who’s Who of American Women.
To prepare for her endeavors, Ms. Brannon earned a master’s degree from Fairfield University in 1973. She also joined prominent professional organizations like the American Association of University Professors, the Texas Junior College Teachers Association, the National League for Nursing, the National Association of Realtors, the French International Culinary Society, and Sigma Theta Tau.
When Ms. Brannon isn’t working, she enjoys dance, music, and travel.
