    Brenda started in the financial services industry over 35 years ago. During that time, she has evolved a practice focused on financial planning and customized investment strategies. She draws on her extensive knowledge and experience to help clients navigate the complexities of wealth and invest for their goals. In 2012, Brenda distinguished herself from her peers by earning her Wealth Advisor designation, which required a rigorous training program focused on deepening her wealth management insight.


    She is a Memphis native, receiving her BBA from The University of Memphis. She has three children with her late husband and two step children. She has served as a member and volunteer with The Junior League of Memphis and is active in the alumni association. Much of her philanthropic efforts and time outside the office are focused on her son's school and her church community and choir. Brenda loves to travel with her husband, Bob, and spend time with her two dogs.
