Brenda Zimmerman Executive Director
Brenda Zimmerman has spent much of the last 8 years working on varied US based and International disaster relief projects, as well as helping run a few start-ups, small businesses, and incorporate some local nonprofits. She brings a unique blend of experience across all facets of management and administration, with experience from accounting to construction project management.
One of her favorite roles to date was leading an international medical relief foundation in Haiti. While not a medical provider, she found the reward in managing all of the documentation, logistics, and ground support to allow the medical volunteers to be really meaningful and successful with their time in Country. She is excited to get to know all of you and support you in your fundraising to honor your loved one, while offering terrific administration and customer service.
