At a young age, Brenda took an interest in health and fitness and admired the physique of female bodybuilders. Having lost her parents and brother at such a young age, from ailments such as cancer, Brenda knows intimately the importance of treating and fueling your body well. It wasn't until she was in her 40's that she truly realized the finite nature of life and decided to take control of her health and wellness.
