She's worked on a variety of stories since arriving in the Pikes Peak region. Her most memorable assignment is covering Patrick Frazee's capital murder trial and following the Gannon Stauch homicide case. She loves being part of the breaking news process and being able to inform southern Coloradans with what is going on in their area.
The Florida native relocated to the Centennial State shortly after her graduation from the University of Central Florida (Go Knights!) with a bachelor's degree in Journalism. She fell in love with Colorado in 2012 when she first visited and has wanted to move here ever since.
Brenda spent her last two years in college working in a variety of newsrooms whether it was in radio, TV, or newspapers, learning more and more that she loves journalism because of its impact and being able to serve a community no matter what.
In her free time, Brenda likes to go hiking and explore the beautiful state. She also loves to watch TV shows or movies, feed her T.J. Maxx obsession, or search for cool vinyl records at thrift shops.
