Originally, Brenda hailed from the Midwest. Following graduation from Rochester Institute of Technology in New York, with two degrees in both Accounting and Business Administration-Management, Phoenix, with its warm climate, beckoned her. She is a proud Sun of the Valley resident of 20+ years and still counting! Due to a desire for a career change to become an international Deaf interpreter, she decided to attend Phoenix College to obtain a degree interpreting. Because of her dual passion for travel and learning foreign languages, especially in sign language. She found these two passions to be a natural fit! Her special interests add to the enthusiasm and challenge of serving on the Board.
