Organizational & Human Development Consultant

Brenda drives initiatives to deliver high-impact, results-oriented learning and organizational development programs, support enterprise-wide improvement to advance Rialto’s scalability for growth, and lead Rialto to be future-focused and globally recognized as a leading virtual workplace.

She is also a licensed REALTOR® with the Murphey Team at the Austin SW Market Center. Brenda helps first-time homebuyers in the Austin area on their journey to find the special home that’s right for them. More than just a transaction-based real estate agent, she is a true advocate for her clients before, during, and beyond the sale. She sometimes even plays the role of marriage counselor--whatever it takes to help her clients find the best home for their family’s future.

Brenda began her career in 1993 with Addressing Your Needs — an Austin-based database marketing firm — where she managed a team of database specialists and designed, developed, and implemented employee and manager training solutions while pursuing a Master of Education degree from the University of Texas. This graduate program, uniquely focused on adult education and human and organizational learning is where Brenda discovered a way to blend her passions for simplifying work with technology and helping people identify and achieve their performance goals.

She gained unparalleled experience in organizational development as well as how to effectively blend technology with training at Spiegel Catalog, DigitalGlobe (literally working with rocket scientists!), and most recently with Keller Williams Realty International before joining Rialto Academy in 2018.

When Brenda is not helping clients, she can be found hiking, in a yoga class, reading, cooking, or spending time with her precious family, pets, and friends, enjoying all that the Austin area has to offer!
