She was then chosen by a panel of officials in the area.

Brown said she was grateful to receive such a competitive award, and feels like she's being praised for doing exactly what she loves to do.

"I just love to take care of people, and love to make a difference in the lives of the children, and I get to see that everyday," said Brown.
