Brenda felt called to missions and midwifery after a short term trip to Nepal in 2008. Brenda joined ACTION in 2016 and she is hoping to return to Nepal and after language school, work as a midwife in the Himalayas. She desires to use her midwifery and medical knowledge to help the people and share the gospel with them.
She did her midwifery training in Davao, Philippines and received her Certified Professional Midwife(CPM) certification in 2013. She has been working as a midwife and doula in the US while working on returning to the mission field.
Brenda grew up in Bellingham, WA where her parents still live. She also has 2 brothers, 1 sister, 2 sister-in-laws and 1 amazing nephew.
