We were pleased to present Brenda with the 2018 Lifetime Entrepreneurship Award at the 10th annual award luncheon on May 18, 2018. With a powerful work ethic, discerning spirit, and kind heart, Brenda has established herself as a respected leader. Her approach to business has been one grounded in mentorship. Having benefited from a UCCS faculty member's interest in her personal success, she pays it forward by mentoring those around her.
Brenda spent over 36 years at BKD, LLP in Colorado Springs where she was the first woman to be appointed managing partner and the first woman to be elected to the company's governing board.
Today, she co-owns the newly renamed Garden of the Gods Collection. Her many and various charitable pursuits include founding the Colorado Springs Leadership Institute, co-founding the Colorado Springs Chamber Nonprofit Partnership, and spearheading the establishment of an endowment in the name of UCCS Accounting Professor Kirk Wilcox.
Thank you to everyone who attended the event on May 18, 2018!
