Early in her career, Brenda worked as a paralegal at law firms in Florida and Virginia. In 2006, she took a job as office manager at a Maryland law firm. In this role, Brenda encountered the accounting world and quickly fell in love. She fostered this new-found passion by enrolling in the University of Maryland’s University College and pursuing a degree in accounting. After graduating in 2012, Brenda joined Murray, Wamsley and Schrader, LLC where she worked in audit, business tax preparation, and government contract accounting. Currently, in her role as a senior accountant with HeimLantz, she continues to focus on government contract accounting, including bookkeeping, payroll, and financial statement preparation.

Brenda was raised in Pennsylvania and Florida. After marrying her high school sweetheart, she lived in many areas around the United States and in Japan in order to accommodate her husband Tony’s Navy career. Upon Tony’s retirement from the Navy in 2016, they settled in Fort Worth, Texas, where Brenda works remotely for HeimLantz.
