Brenda is a military spouse of 22+ years and a member of the TWC facilitation team. As a registered nurse for 40 years and a board-certified art therapist since 2013, she has dedicated her life calling as a healer. Brenda understands that traumatic experiences happen, and recovery is a unique journey for each of us.

As an art therapist with military service members and veterans struggling with brain injury, PTSD, chronic pain, and other challenges, Brenda witnessed how creative expression can be a powerful tool the soul uses to guide us toward great personal insights- quite often by surprise. She practices self-care through expressive arts, and she feels renewal in nature with her family and dogs in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.
