Associate Director, Alumni & Advancement

Brenda’s career spans three continents and everything from entrepreneurship to teaching, and communications to community development – with lots of fun stuff thrown in between, like heading up volunteer crews at the BC Winter Games and the Vancouver 2010 Olympics (yes, volunteering counts in a career!).

Privileged to lead amazing alumni engagement and fundraising teams since 2007, Brenda is driven by the belief that the future relies on human connection. In her work, she sees the power of community to make a difference every day.

Now Associate Director Alumni and Advancement at the University of Portsmouth, if you had told her when she graduated  where she’d be today, she’d have called you mad. And if you think you know exactly where your career is headed, think again. Maybe you’ll end up there, maybe not. The point is, the journey is every bit as exciting as the destination.
