Brown unsuccessfully tried to be the third member of the Brown family to serve as governor (her father and brother both served in the same office), but was defeated by incumbent Republican Governor Pete Wilson (who also defeated Jerry Brown for one of California's US Senate seats in 1982) in the 1994 gubernatorial election.
She currently serves as a partner in law firm Manatt, Phelps & Phillips. 
Prior to joining Manatt she was head of public finance for the Midwest region for Goldman Sachs, after taking positions as president of private banking for Bank of America from 1995 to 2000 and as head of public sector and infrastructure investment for Goldman Sachs from 2001 to 2010. Staying in California for public sector banking would have likely posed a potential conflict of interest.
Brown is a graduate of Stanford University and Fordham University School of Law. She had three children with her first husband, George Rice, whom she later divorced. She is now married to Van Gordon Sauter, at one time President of CBS News, and they have five grown children. Her dog, named Sutter, was given to Jerry Brown and became California's First Dog in 2011.
