Hommerding has been working with Minnesota Hands & Voices since
April of 2006. She started as a Parent Guide and took on the addition
role of Lead Regional Guide
in 2015. In 2017 Brenda moved onto a different role in the organization
as the Guide By Your Side Coordinator. She specializes in educational
advocacy, language development, and community access.
Brenda lives in Central Minnesota. She has been married to her husband Lynn since 1993, and is the parent of twin girls, Amanda and Ashley, who were born in 2001 and are both hard of hearing in different degrees. Brenda herself is also hard of hearing.
Brenda has served on the St. Cloud Area Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services (DHHS) Advisory Board, and has been instrumental in collaborating with community stakeholders to hold events for families locally. Brenda continues to represent MNHV at National Conferences and was recently awarded the Miss Congeniality Award for her patience, kindness, and an all around good natured person (received 2017). Her mother always wanted Brenda to be a teacher, so being a part of Minnesota Hands & Voices allows her to share and learn with a unique group of people.
Brenda loves to cross-stitch, read, paint, dance, garden, and spend time with family and friends.
