INGRID BROWN

My career in Journalism began in 1994, with my first job as a trainee business reporter with the now defunct Jamaica Herald. A year later I began reporting on human interest and health beats and it was during this time that my interest in humanitarian issues, including HIV/AIDS coverage developed. 
In 1995, I was awarded the Press Association of Jamaica human-interest award for coverage of several human-interest articles.
 In 1998 the Jamaica National Building Society also awarded me for another human-interest article written while pursuing my diploma in media and communications at the University of the West Indies.
 
In 1997 I made a career move to the Gleaner Company where I was employed to cover various beats including court, crime, news, human interest and entertainment
In 2000, I resigned the Gleaner Company to study in the United States, where I pursued undergraduate studies in pre-law.
In 2005 I returned to Jamaica and took up a job with the Government’s News Agency  (JIS) as a reporter. Two year later, I was offered the job as a senior reporter with the Jamaica Observer and was later promoted to my current position as Associate Editor-Special Assignment.
 
I have participated in numerous journalist training sessions both locally and abroad to include a Reuters Foundation HIV/AIDS reporting course in London in 2007. I have also covered several international conferences to include the IAS Conferences in Australia, Mexico and Austria.
 
I am also the recipient of four PAHO awards at the national level for 2007 and 2008, the Press Association Award for Best Feature story in 2008 and Best News Story for 2010. I was also warded the Best Print story in the Fair Play Awards for 2008 and 2009.
