While attending UCI Brenda studied to become a Civil Engineer, but one day found herself falling in love with the construction side instead when touring a high rise. After that fateful day, she proceeded to work a couple of construction internships and after graduation started working in her dream industry. She continues to love working in construction because of groups like WiOPS and NAWIC. She is currently the NAWIC Membership Director where she works on outreach and bringing more females together.
Outside of work Brenda likes to play soccer and test her smarts and her strength on spartan obstacle courses. She is also starting to train to run her first half marathon! Congratulations to Brenda!
