Brown Shoes Inc. Sales Specialists

Maria began her career in shoes 30 years ago. Her initial experience included assistant manager positions with Payless Shoes as well as Kinney Shoes. This experience pointed her toward a fulltime position as Orthotic Technician for Lair Shoes, an orthopedic shoe store with large focus on referrals from Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. Her pedorthic certification (C50047) was acquired in 2010. The opportunity to manage a brand new store, Phillip Shoes, presented itself until her personal life led her to the heart of it all, Ohio. Maria's custom shoe-fitting skills as well as her custom orthotic craftsmanship have benefitted Brown Shoes in countless ways since her inaugural day.


Angie, mother of three, was born and raised in our very own Grove City, Ohio. She specialized as an orthopedic technician at Doctor's Hospital. Her 20 years as shoe-fitter in both Ohio and Florida have helped Brown Shoes understand a more diverse customer base. Her experience/management credentials include Peltz Shoes, Dick's Sporting Goods, Galyan's, Finish Line and Frontrunner. She's an active participant in half-marathons, and a rare talent afforded by Brown Shoes.
