My Story

Brenda is a Financial Advisor, Retirement Income Certified Professional (RICP), Certified Divorce Financial Analyst (CDFA) and founder of Bridging Wealth Solutions. With a focus on clients’ needs, Brenda approaches each with the same process: listen, reflect and act. Her strong belief in ongoing education keeps her current in ideas and trends. Brenda is proud to offer her clients options and education. She is passionate about guiding them to a stable, healthy financial future and the freedom that delivers. She’s extremely proud to have helped hundreds of clients with the financial and divorce planning over the last decade.

Prior to establishing BWS, Brenda spent many years in the corporate world managing the product development of large national brands and overseeing hefty marketing budgets, which included multiple investment and insurance companies. In her community, she continues to help others to enhance youth education, to expand access to mental health support, and to raise funds for cancer research.

Growing up in the Midwest, Brenda has always been known for her compassionate strength, her kind spirit, and her dedicated work ethic. Both in her community and throughout her career, she has embodied these values by dedicating herself to improving the well-being of others - financially, physically and mentally.
 
After a lifetime in Chicago, she and her partner, Patrick, relocated to Chattanooga. They’re enjoying discovering all that this amazing city has to offer (and not missing the snow even one little bit).

Stella

Chief Morale Officer, Boxer Extraordinaire

When Stella isn’t napping comfortably in the office, she enjoys peering out the window. She carefully watches the Broad Street activity and happily greets all who approach.
 
Stella’s extraordinary talent is lending her own special brand of serenity to our space. No matter what is going on in the world, she keeps calm, cool, and collected…so as long as her water bowl is full and her treats are handy.

Wealth is the ability to fully experience life. - Henry David Thoreau
