Front Desk/Patient Coordinator
Brenda’s passion is wellness but the road that led her to Carolina Functional Neurology is a long and winding one. After graduating from her hometown community college in the Midwest, her first job was with AT&T Bell Labs in Naperville, IL. After that she held positions as the Assistant IT Director at the Niles School District, Computer Consultant at HP and several others in the software field. In 1999, her company transferred her to the Triangle area, where she’s been ever since. She loves NC’s weather (no more -23 degree Chicagoland winter days!), NC’s terrain – you can go to the beach or mountains within hours, and most of all NC’s people.
After realizing her true passion, she switched gears and delved into the yoga world. Changing her career changed everything. Having a new and different perspective than living in the corporate world, she found her calling in helping people feel better after injury, chronic aches and pains, or whatever. She became a master yoga teacher, creating her own style of yoga, Qi Infused Yoga™, authoring three books, and learning all she could about health and wellness.
Through study of the body and its reactions, she learned disease is caused by a dis-ease in the body. Realizing something was not right in her own body back in her computer science days, she now became even more determined to figure out what was causing the uneasiness within her own body. However, the problem was she looked healthy so most doctors just dismissed her concerns, until Carolina Functional Neurology and Dr. Brindisi. She cannot begin to express her gratitude and appreciation for Dr. Brindisi’s diligence in finally identifying the root cause of all her seemingly unrelated issues and developing a treatment plan specifically for her to bring her body back to a state of ease and wellness. She feels better than she has in years.
Besides her passion for health and wellness and yoga, she enjoys people, dogs, billiards, cooking, drawing, and reading.
