Brenda grew up in Cape Town, attended Jan van Riebeeck High School and studied at the University of Stellenbosch, before moving to Gauteng in 1996, when Arthur, her husband, were offered a job transfer. Although she misses going to the beach and spending time with her family, she has made special friendships in Johannesburg and the weather is so much better here. They have two very sporty teenagers, Theo and Melina who keep her busy in the afternoons.
She started working at JBC in February 2010 as Nat’s Personal Assistant. She is also the Human Recourse Manager and design most of the JBC brochures, flyers, pamphlets and signage. Before that she worked as a Pre-Primary School Administrator at a local private school. She attends Christ Church Blairgowrie where she is an active member of the Soup Kitchen (Bread of Life Ministry)
