Jonathon M. Brown, D.O.

Jonathon Brown is a 1998 graduate of Saint Mary Magdalen School.  His journey at SMM began in Mrs. Houghton’s 3A classroom and continued all the way through to Mrs. Stohl’s 8A classroom in the corner of the junior high wing.  At SMM, Jonathon was very involved in the school community.  He was an altar server (continuing all the way through high school) as well as an 8th grade commissioner.

Following his time at SMM, Jonathon attended Henry M. Jackson High School in Mill Creek where he was a varsity letterman in football and wrestling as well as a team captain of the football team his senior season.  In 2001 he earned his Eagle Scout award through Troop 18 at St. Mary Magdalen, and his Eagle Scout project was the creation of a small courtyard and walkway for the students of the school.

After graduating from Jackson High School in 2002, he continued on to the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma where he earned his undergraduate degree in Biology with minor concentrations in both Chemistry and Religion.  While at Puget Sound he was a varsity letterman on the football team and a member of Phi Delta Theta fraternity.  Jonathon’s passion for giving back through service in his community lead him to The Boys and Girls club in North Tacoma where he dedicated his time as well as the health clinic at the University of Puget Sound where is also volunteered his time.

Following graduation from UPS in 2006, he completed graduate studies at Drexel University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and his medical degree from Touro University Nevada, graduating in 2012.  He returned to Philadelphia for his residency training through the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine consortium which took him up and down the east coast to Baltimore, Boston, and many places in between, finishing training in June of 2017.

Currently, Jonathan is completing his fellowship in adult reconstructive surgery at New England Baptist Hospital where he also functions as a clinical associate in orthopaedic surgery for Tufts University School of Medicine, teaching medical students and residents as well performing research on the treatment of hip and knee arthritis.

Jonathon remains active in his faith life.  He splits his time between two parishes – while home he attends St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish in Bothell with his family, and while working is active at St. Ignatius parish in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts.  Throughout his personal and academic journey his faith has been a touchstone in his life, providing a source of strength and constancy.  The foundation given to him by his family was strengthened by his time at SMM and continues to direct him through his daily life as he works to serve those entrusted to his care.

We are all so proud of Dr. Jonathan Brown!
