Brenda's mother named her after Brenda Starr the red-headed reporter. Knowing she was born to write, her mother gave her a pen and paper as soon as she could form words. The rest is history. Brenda has written blogs and campaigns that have earned national acclaim and she has grown into an award winning communicator -- helping organizations communicate both their tough and ta-da messages.
With 25 years of marketing communications, corporate communications, and public relations experience, what Brenda loves to do most is write, report and persuade. Her toolbox and skillsets run deep.
She has a long track record of creating newsworthy stories that earn media coverage and digital content that connects deeply with both B2B and B2C customers. She is accredited through the International Association of Business Communicators.

Built Blog with International Readership
Over a three year course, I built a blog with 6,000 readers across the globe. Midlife Mona Lisa published eBooks and wrote sponsored articles to earn national acclaim and income. The notoriety landed me a CBS reality show "The Job" where I competed against Millennials for a editorial position at Cosmopolitan magazine.
