Brownley began her career in public service in 1994 after deciding to run for the local school board as a way to advocate for a better education for her daughter, who had dyslexia, and other special-needs students. She won and served on the school board for three subsequent terms working to ensure that local schools provided a quality education for every student in the district. She was elected to the California State Legislature in 2006, where she served as Chairwoman of the Assembly Education Committee for four years. She also served on every educational committee in the Assembly, including the Committee on Higher Education, Budget Subcommittee No. 2 on Education Finance, and the State Allocation Board.

Then-Assemblywoman Brownley was awarded numerous honors for her leadership on education and the environment. She was one of just 10 legislators in 2011 with lifetime perfect scores by the California League of Conservation Voters. Brownley received "Legislator of the Year" awards, the highest honor a legislator can receive, from the California Association for Bilingual Education, the California Council for Adult Education and California Adult Education Administrators Association, the Congress of California Seniors, the California School Boards Association, the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards, the California Federation of Teachers, and the California League of High Schools. Brownley also received the "2010 Environmental Champions Award" from the Environmental Working Group, and was honored as one of "12 Remarkable Women" by the National Women's Political Caucus, Los Angeles Westside in 2008 and as the "Woman of the Year" by the YWCA in 2005.

After graduating with a B.A. in political science from George Washington University and earning an M.B.A. from American University, Congresswoman Brownley worked in marketing in private industry before finding her true calling in public service. She resides in Thousand Oaks, and has two children- Fred, who graduated from UCLA Medical School and is currently doing his residency in Chicago, and Hannah, who works on poverty and HIV/AIDS prevention in Africa for an international aid organization.
