Brenda is the proud mother of two boys, Chase and Maclain. Her son Maclain has severe Cerebral Palsy and profound hearing loss as a result of a condition known as Kernicterus, a brain injury that results from untreated jaundice. As a former Gluckstein client herself, Brenda acts as our Client Liaison to support and advise our clients and their families throughout their case.

She tirelessly advocates for better systems and programs for children with special needs. Brenda has been appointed to the Community Council for the American Academy of Cerebral Palsy and Developmental Medicine for a 3-year term and is an active member for volunteer organizations such as CP-Net, CHILD-BRIGHT Citizen Engagement Committee, and the Burlington Accessibility Advisory Committee.
