It is with a heavy heart that we announce the retirement of our favorite Drill Sergeant and Den Mother... our irreplaceable Accounting and HR Manager,
Brenda started with Shumla in 2004 as a volunteer for the educational programs. She taught botany lessons and how to weave baskets as the people of the Pecos once did. Soon, she was contracting as an educator, alongside her other contract positions in bookkeeping. Dr. Carolyn Boyd asked her to join Shumla as a part-time employee in bookkeeping in 2009 and finally, in 2011, convinced her to come on full time as our Accounting and HR Manager.
For fifteen years, Brenda has been an integral part of our world. We can't imagine Shumla without her but we know she is going to have a wonderful time in retirement, traveling with her husband Steve.
We love you and will miss you, Brenda!
