This week I would like to dedicate my post to a friend, advocate and a leader within the disability sector in Victoria, who passed away last Thursday 14th April 2011 at the age of 61.
I trust people who knew Brenda will agree with me when I say that she exceeded in her role as a leader and an advocate for people with disabilities.
Her positive attitude linked with her pleasant nature, are two reasons why she was so highly regarded by so many people.
A quote from Women with Disabilities Victoria
Brenda, who inspired us all with her dynamism, generosity and enormous zest for life. Brenda was a member of the Board of Women with Disabilities Victoria and our representative on the Victorian Disability Advocacy Network. She contributed with great warmth and generosity both personally and through the breadth of her skill and knowledge
