Founder & CEO
Brenda Earley is currently a resident of Suffolk, VA. I am from Ahoskie, N.C., where my 5 siblings (2 brothers and 3 sisters) and my mother currently live. My father died in 2008.
Although I don’t have a spouse or any children, in August 2018 I “adopted” two Maltese which are quite the handful. Primarily, my focus is on my family, including my mother, siblings and nephews and nieces.
I am very active in my church as the Finance Secretary/Trustee and editor for our monthly church newsletter.
I have 30+ years’ experience in Human Resources, which encompasses several disciplines, including recruitment, benefits, compensation and employee relations. I also oversee the administrative areas of our Occupational Health Department.
I am interested in this cause for several reasons – primarily because I know several women who were victims of domestic violence. I realize that domestic violence is not specific to gender, age, race or religion and it is not just a physical violation, it can also be mental and/or emotional. I am hoping to be a positive and compassionate voice to a very important cause.
