Hello There


Hello, I’m Brenda, and I help people take their next right step to create a meaningful career that energizes the life they dream of. A life with purpose.


Much of my career has been in the Human Resource discipline. I have a behind-the-scenes understanding of hiring practices, and I “get” what hiring managers are looking for. I also have the advantage of working within multiple industries, from my early days in tech at Cisco Systems and eBay, to family owned and mid-sized companies, to leadership roles in Fortune 500 organizations such as Gap Inc. (Athleta) and Newell Brands. 


This broad experience gives me insight into the benefits and nuances of multiple industries and work environments. It provides perspective to help you know what to expect from the different paths you might take. It helps me give you the tools to build a plan and make your best decisions. 


The common thread that runs through all of my experience is connecting and partnering with people to resolve struggles and remove obstacles, helping each person recognize in themselves their strengths and what makes them uniquely great. 


I also understand, from very personal experience, what it’s like to take time away for family, to pivot, and to return back to work. This is the experience and passion I bring to my coaching practice. It’s what lights me up.


My life is made full with a love of learning, a regular yoga practice and sangha, painting, hiking, time at the beach, and enjoying the company of my friends and family.
