Brenda’s work has involved teaching with a focus on special needs including working with at-risk youth. She was the director for two non-profits which specialized in community resources, volunteerism, collaboration, community events, and programs to strengthen the family and community. She was also a grant writer and managed large grants and budgets. She was a single parent through most of the years her children grew up and understands the dynamics of family stress and trauma.
Brenda believes in equality for all men, women, children and special populations regardless of race religion or gender. She has been an active voice for those who cannot speak for themselves and is committed to representing those who want to be heard. She has been active in promoting programs to strengthen the family, churches, community and volunteerism. She believes that the more a community works together then the more they are vested in the community.
Brenda’s goals if elected are to represent the unrepresented, to help the community collaborate and come together, to help workers have a higher standard and accountability.
