Brenda is a partner, mother, grandmother and an entrepreneur in life. She learns from others every day and delights in sharing her experiences to pay it forward. Life in business since she was 19 has created its own challenges, but she looks at challenges as just another opportunity to grow. To stand up or stoop down to meet her grandchildren’s smiles, hugs, and their I Love You’s makes all the hard work worth it. Every day is a gift and Brenda is thankful for all the blessings she has encountered in her life.

Why Matrix Integration?
When I look at the leadership team and all the employees of Matrix and see what together we have created for over 37 years, there’s so many things to like. The friends I’ve made and the lives that have been impacted for the better make working at Matrix very rewarding.
