Brenda started in the insurance business part time while still in high school in 1976 and joined the PayneWest Personal Insurance team in 2018 as an account manager in the Missoula office. She enjoys her relationships with her customers and loves the ability to review and update her accounts, making sure they have the protection they need at the most competitive premium. Insurance can be very confusing to many, and she appreciates the opportunity to make it a little easier to understand.In her spare time, she loves woodworking. Brenda donated one of her American Flags made of re-claimed fence wood to a benefit for the Wounded Warrior Project as well as one to the Oso Fire Department benefit after the Oso Mudslide in 2014. Brenda and her husband, Leif, are building their "forever" home in the Bitterroot Valley and enjoy time spent with their three grown children, their spouses and their seven grandchildren.
