Brenda was born, and raised in Florida and currently resides in Palm Beach. Becoming a lover of football happened at a young age. She would watch all of the games with her dad. She also started dancing from a young age. During her years in high school, she was on the dance/drill team. What a perfect way to blend love of both! Not to mention having the best seat! Upon graduating from high school, she went directly to nursing school. It was in nursing school that she met Pam, who was also a student and a cheerleader. This is how Brenda found out about the auditions to become a cheerleader. Brenda was very excited about the opportunity to audition. We both made the team that year! So, our classmates thought it was pretty cool to have two Miami Dolphins cheerleaders in their class! To this very day, she and I are still the best of friends, even though we live miles apart. Brenda made the team her first time auditioning at the age of 19. Brenda cheered 1980-1983 and 1987.
