Brenda hails from Wisconsin by way of Minnesota. She received her Bachelor of Arts in Physiology and Spanish from the University of Wisconson and can support English and Spanish speaking clients. She is currently working towards her Doula Certification and is a Medical Student at Touro University where she's has learned many hands on skills for easing pain and muscle tension throughout the cycle of pregnancy and postpartum. Prior to coming to the Bay Area, Brenda was a Certified Nursing Assistant making her a perfect addition to our Whatadoula family as she is both kind and skilled at caring for women when they need it most.

As of February 2016 Brenda has returned to rotations in the Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine Program at Touro University full time.  "I enjoyed my time at Whatadoula immensely; it was an amazing 6 months of Doula work and I look forward to seeing everyone's babies grow into awesome children on Facebook. My experience at Whatadoula has made my first rotation back on OB-GYN extra special." Brenda has already started catching babies as a Student Doctor!
