Brame, Marillyn 4278782_15963036 TP art2.jpgDr. Brame started out wanting to become an artist and attended Meinzinger Art School in Detroit from 1946 to 1947 until she decided that being a starving artist was not what she wanted to do. She held various positions to make a living and in 1952 she opened a shop, Signs by Marilyn, but after a year, she wanted to do something else. She applied for a position as an illustrator at the Sandia Corporation, which was a corporation working with the Atom Bomb. She was told that they would not hire a woman in the illustration department but she could work typing out the bids. After proving her skill set, she was quickly moved to the position of schematic draftsman, which she found very easy to learn. She held that position from 1953 until 1956, when she moved to Miami to live with her father. She went for an interview with Eastern Airlines and they refused to hire her because she was a woman. She ended up in Orlando, Florida, working with The Martin Company as a draftsman but they called the position junior engineer. She worked there from 1957 until 1965 and during that time she was promoted to electrical mechanical engineer, overseeing seven men and one woman. At one point they had 102 people in the engineering department, 101 men and her. During her time with The Martin Company, she continued to pursue her education by taking classes at the University of New Mexico and at Orlando Junior College. In 1974, she studied at El Camino College in Torrance, California, before earning a PhD in hypnotherapy at the American Institute of Hypnotherapy in 1989. She is currently using that degree as a hypnotherapist at Visual Arts Hypnotherapy where she has worked since 1978. Dr. Brame also has a Reiki practice where she teaches healing and she has an art school where she teaches five classes a week.

As a testament to spending 70 years in her profession, Dr. Brame is included on the CityBrame, Marillyn 4278782_15963036 TP art1 of Mission Viejo’s Wall of Recognition for community service, and listed in the International Biographical Roll of Honor for Distinguished Service to the Art, Education, Communication and Engineering Professions.
