Brenda, one of our Certified Caregiving Consultants™, is also now a Certified Caregiving Educator™ and Certified Caregiving Facilitator™. Brenda is also one of our 2019 Family Caregiver of the Year Award winners.

Brenda is the proud and passionate caregiver of her 25-year-old daughter, Nikki, who has significant physically and developmental disabilities that make her medically fragile and dependent on technology for survival. Brenda was part of the first Family Faculty at her regional children’s hospital, teaching healthcare providers and students about the needs of children with health challenges and their families. She participated in the inaugural healthcare and caregiver collaboration aimed at enhancing the transition of children from pediatrics to adult healthcare services. Most recently, she started Coaching for Caregivers Canada in an effort to provide support and guidance to caregivers whose needs are often overlooked in their caregiving journeys. Above all else, Brenda’s meaning, wisdom, and inspiration is found in being mother to Nikki, a young lady who brings infectious love and laughter to the world everyday!
