Our Team

Living at the edge of Silicon Valley among century-old redwoods, Brenda is inspired by cutting-edge ideas to preserve our world and advance society. In the epicenter of innovation, successful ideas are built on a focused strategy. She believes to fully see the forest through the trees you have to go there—mining data, talking to stakeholders and examining issues from every angle.

Using her passion for insightful research, Brenda has helped some of the most loved brands create world-changing initiatives and share their successes through creative communications. She advanced companies like Starbucks, Harley Davidson, Jockey, L’Oreal and Nestle Waters on their corporate responsibility and strategic philanthropic efforts while working at Cone Communications with Cause Consulting Principals Mark Feldman and Nikki Korn. Wearing her nonprofit hat, Brenda oversaw Marketing & Communications for Net Impact, where she led the organization through a major brand transformation that has brought new clarity, vitality, and engagement to the brand. She was also a member of the team that created the strategy for the award-winning American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women campaign. Brenda has a communications degree from Boston University and is an Advisory Board Member for the nonprofit The Dinner Party.

When she’s not immersing herself on a new client challenge, you’ll find her having a dance party with her kids, exploring the woods around her home, or wrestling her gigantic dog Timber.
