Brenda's dedication to those she coaches is unrivaled; she truly cares about the individual's goals and provides strategic guidance to propel careers. In my experience with Brenda, she was very organized, drilled into details that I had overlooked within my resume and profile, and truly listened to my needs. Thank you, Brenda!

Brenda "Gets It" is the term that was coined for her by several of the students, military veterans, and community partners. She is attentive and resourceful in building career paths for the people she works with. I was impressed with her attitude and approach in helping people navigate towards their career goals. As Brenda would say "if that's your dream then let's figure out how to get you there" She is a giver and will be a strong contributor to any organization.

Working with Brenda has been an incredibly enriching experience. In her “Discovering Your Heart’s Desire” workshop, I not only discovered much more clarity about what I really wanted to do in retirement, but I also found new spiritual awareness of who I really am.

Brenda is an outstanding career coach. She always displayed the most positive of attitudes. Brenda helped provide me with the confidence I needed to figure out both what career suited me best and how to get the job. Thanks to working with Brenda I am now doing my Internship at Banner Health and excited for the days ahead. Brenda . I am lucky to have had her as my career coach and I know any place she goes always ends up better. Her work ethic, ability to adapt to any situation, sense of humor, dedication to her clients, and relationship building are just some of her attributes that make her an excellent candidate for any job she applies to.

As a career coach, Brenda is an active partner. She has spent multiple sessions helping me better identify my own career goals and pathway. At conferences and various events she has been outstanding in helping identify and network with companies.
She is a great supporter of veterans, understanding key issues that at times may hold them back, and mentoring them in ways to overcome their challenges.

Brenda shines in helping active military service members transition to the civilian sector. She is providing a humbling service as many veterans lack the skills to market themselves as well as the skills for a traditional interview/resume creation. Thank you Brenda!

As my career coach Brenda was invaluable in helping me to tell my professional story. Her expertise in personal branding and up-to-date knowledge in career management trends were immediately apparent. Over multiple coaching sessions, Brenda provided advice spanning the entirety of my job search. Her coaching paid dividends as I was able to successfully transition into an entirely new industry after a few short months. I look forward to working with Brenda again in the future.

Brenda's professionalism, career coaching skills, and ability to inspire others to never give up on their dreams is unmatched. Brenda coached me as an online student at Thunderbird School of Global Management in a way that didn't make me feel disconnected from my program or their resources. She proactively reached out to me and checked on me during my job search, while also sending me opportunities she believed I would find desirable. Her continuous communication with me made me feel like she truly cared. She is innovative and determined to help others find success. During her time with Thunderbird, she created career coaching platforms for all students both online and on campus to utilize. She organized resumes of students seeking employment and placed them on thumb drives as gifts for potential employers she encountered. She consistently thought outside of the box. Brenda is fantastic at identifying skills veterans have and translating them to civilian sector roles, which is hard to find in a mentor during a challenging military transition. I never felt as if my skills were not valued, and would often receive transparent feedback from her during my interview processes. She is an incredibly positive person who values the utmost happiness of others, and I know that any organization would be lucky to have her on their team.

Brenda's devotion to helping and inspiring Veterans was matched only by her professionalism. Her ability to help Veterans translate military experience into marketable skills paid dividends to all the Veterans at Thunderbird School of Global management. She went above and beyond the call of duty, consistently, to not only provide career counseling but also to help Veterans transition back into school/civilian life. She was a joy to work with, knew the military lingo better than most Sergeants, and is personally dedicated to helping Veterans, not just earning a paycheck. Additionally, she is very well connected with alumni Veterans and mastered the art of networking.
