She grew up in Carrot River SK, and Dauphin MB, with her sibling Brad. Brenda graduated high school in Dauphin and went on to study Dental Hygiene in at the University of Manitoba, graduating in 1978.

The couple had two children (Ryan and Elise) and lived in several places including Calgary AB, Dauphin MB, Edmonton AB, Corunna ON, Paris ON, Cincinnati OH, Villa Rica GA, Humble TX, and Houston TX.
