Brenda graduated from all three welding certificate programs at Southwest Tech: Essential Welding, Production Welder, and Structural and Steel Pipe Welding.
Brenda grew up in St. George, Utah. She is married and has three children. Brenda served in the Marine Corps for four years. Her husband is also a veteran.
After serving in the Marine Corps, Brenda attended college to become a Hospital Administrator and wanted to one day run her own business. But she quickly realized a desk job was not for her.
She always had an interest in welding. While searching online, she discovered Southwest Technical College and enrolled the following day.
She loved the programs, and upon completion of her welding certificates, she enrolled in Southwest Technical College’s Automotive Program. When she completes the Automotive Program, she wants to study welding automobiles, aircraft and whatever else she can get her hands on.
