Brenda’s interest in CityKidz began after riding a bus as a guest; there was no doubt that CityKidz was where she wanted to be. She originally began as a volunteer and in her volunteer capacity she worked closely with the KinderKidz Coordinator. Brenda became the natural choice to take over the Coordinator role when Mel went on maternity leave. She is a graduate of McMaster University with a B.A. in Sociology and has spent the last 20 years teaching and programming for children and youth. Brenda loves when she meets children in the neighbourhood who know her as the KinderKidz lady, especially when they begin to sing their favourite KinderKidz songs. Brenda truly believes each child has the potential to become something wonderful.
