She was awarded the Outstanding Achievement Award at the National Magazine Awards in 2009 and accepted it with a graceful speech, dedicating it to those “behind the scenes” who make magazines tick.

Brouse chronicled her struggle with cancer in a funny and frank manner on her blog, The Clothesline Saga.
