Brenda has worked as a senior organizational development consultant: a strategic leadership partner responsible for achieving individual, team and organizational growth in healthcare for over 10 years. She has also worked in different capacities over the last 25 years specializing in a variety of areas within hospital settings as a social work manager before developing a passion for organizational development. Brenda also trains other staff at different facilities about organizational development. Her areas of specialization are: teambuilding, conflict management, and compassion satisfaction to name a few.

Brenda had the privilege of being trained by both Insoo Kim Berg and Steve De Shazer on how to incorporate the Solution Focused approach outside the therapy room.

Brenda now teaches post graduate students part time for Toronto Advanced Professional Education (T.A.P.E), Faculty of Social Work Continuing Education affiliated with the University of Toronto as well as for the Adler Learning Centre.
