Meet our Founders
Owner, BJ Brown, grew up working for his dad and uncles in the construction field and started his own construction company at the age of 19 to pay his way through Texas State University. He was successful in both business and school, and believes he owes it in part to the strong work ethics and integrity his family instilled in him. Ingrained by Nature, LLC, is rooted in basic principles such as paying extra attention to details, going beyond what customers pay for, and most importantly, that we are only as good as our word.
After graduating from college with a degree in Communication Studies, BJ worked in the corporate world and continued to improve his ever-growing business management skills. However, after several years, BJ realized it was only natural that he move outside the traditional workplace, and he began making plans to use what he had learned to get back to the construction field. He landed just the job he needed in 2010, and it was a catalyst for him to create Ingrained by Nature, LLC, in 2014.
BJ has been married to Jen since April 2010. Jen has a gift for working with at-risk children and earned both a Bachelor and Master’s Degree in education. She taught 5th grade for many years before transitioning into child welfare, and among other roles, was the director of a local child-placing agency that serves children in foster care and their families. In 2017, Jen founded Stand Up Eight, a one-of-its-kind nonprofit that helps families bond after adoption.
BJ and Jen live in Round Rock with their dog, Barkley. BJ likes to golf, mountain bike, play and watch sports (especially when his teams are winning), spend time outside, travel, and work in his wood shop; however, he especially loves to snow ski. Jen is crafty, addicted to strong coffee, a die-hard football fan, and hopes to someday be a beach bum.
