In addition to her role as chief financial officer for WordWrite, Brenda has built a broad and comprehensive career of more than two decades in marketing, public relations and publishing.
Brenda began her career at what became one of the world's largest B2B marketing agencies, HSR Business to Business. Transitioning from agency work, she worked in marketing during the mid 1980s for some of the biggest names in American business, including the start-up teams for Donnelly Information Publishing's "Talking Yellow Pages" project and Leaseway Transportation's less-than-truckload division.
From the client side, Brenda moved into marketing for nonprofits, including the Construction Specifications Institute, where she supervised production and marketing of the respected SPEC-DATA suite of printed and electronic programs used by architects and construction specifiers around the world to select building products.
Brenda returned to agencies in the early 1990s, working as a manager with the Alexandria, Va. public relations firm, Mitchell Peterson, with clients including the Aseptic Packaging Council.
As a cofounder of WordWrite, with husband Paul, Brenda maintains an active roster of clients who seek her practiced eye and understanding of all varieties of collateral for editing and proofreading. Among her clients are Carnegie Museums and Children's Hospital of PIttsburgh.
