Brenda helps members of VictoryPoint get the training and motivation they need to mentor students at Great Lakes Elementary School so they can make a difference in a child’s life.



“Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind. ‘Pooh!’ he whispered. ‘Yes, Piglet?’ ‘Nothing,’ said Piglet, taking Pooh’s paw. ‘I just wanted to be sure of you.'”

Some kids show their emotion easily and a mentor sees or hears the difference they make. However, some kids quietly share the power a mentor makes. They all thrive because someone cares enough to show up for them each week.

I grew up in Holland. I am the youngest and only girl in my family. It was a good spot to be in! I am blessed to be married to Scott and love my kids, Megan – married to Tim and Jordan – soon to be married to Emily.
