Small Talk with Teri

Meet Erik Brown, who lives in Pleasant Hill with his wife, Kara Kimber Brown, and their children, Angelo and Bella. Erik works at The Employment and Human Services Department of Contra Costa County as a Departmental Fiscal Officer. He’s partially responsible for the development of the yearly budget, among other things. “The best part of the job is knowing that we’re providing services that help needy families.”

Passion in life? I’ve always been heavily influenced by music. I’ve been a Grateful Dead fan since I saw my first show back in 1982. Anytime I see live music, I’m a happier person.
Favorite personality trait? My better trait is that I’m pretty organized.

Personality trait you’d like to work on? The one trait I’d like to change, if I could, is to try not to become overwhelmed with what’s going on around me.

One word that describes your life? Hectic, with teenage kids involved in different activities and going to different schools and running a household with a dog, a cat, and everyone going in different directions.
New Year’s Resolutions? Eat better, exercise more, and concentrate on our health. Having a dog helps because I’m forced to take her for walks.
