Brenda cares deeply about Kent and has worked in several volunteer and appointed capacities to ensure that all of Kent’s families and residents have the opportunity to succeed. 


During her career at Equifax, she worked with Kent’s financial community and was nationally recognized three times as Customer Service Consultant of the Year. Brenda oversaw a multi-million dollar organization as Kent Youth and Family Services’ Board President, delivering improved results while on an increasingly tight budget.

Brenda was President of multiple school PTAs and is a two-time Golden Acorn Award recipient. She was a member of the Kent School District Diversity Task Force and is a contributing author of the district’s original Diversity Task Force Plan which was nationally recognized. 

Brenda also served on the Kent Parks Citizen Committee and Kent Police Department Strategic Planning Committee. She is eager to help Kent’s diverse communities better partner with our city and police department to make Kent an even safer place to live, work, shop and visit. 

Brenda’s position at Holy Spirit Parish and work with the Kent International Festival have enabled her to work with a broad cross-section of our community. Brenda also lead the development of Kent’s W.H.O.M.E. women’s homeless shelter, helping the city’s most vulnerable women gain safe shelter and help transitioning to permanent, stable housing.


A long-time Kent resident, Brenda's son and daughter are both graduates of Kent public schools.
