Drown was a National Health Service accountant and member of Oxfordshire County Council before her election to parliament. A mother of young children, she was at the forefront of campaigns to make Parliament more child-friendly, including the allowing of breast-feeding. She stepped down at the 2005 election to spend more time with her children, although she did not rule out standing again for election at some point in the future.
Drown currently (May 2018) holds a couple of organisational positions. She chairs the Veterinary Medicines Directorate, and is a trustee of the Pension Scheme for the Nursing and Midwifery Council and Associated Employers. She also occasionally trains for Eden and Partners (a health sector leadership and training consultancy). Previously she was a member of the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority Appeals Committee, the Health Care Professions Council and the Audit Committee of the Nursing and Midwifery Council.
