is happily married to the man who rescued her from a life of emotional, physical, and sexual abuse. Together, they broke several dysfunctional cycles and raised four beautiful children who love the Lord. Playing with her grandchildren brings joy to her life, so adding four more in the last year really was a blessing!
She has a Bachelor of Science degree in Criminal Justice and is a retired adult probation officer. Writing a book about her life experiences has long been a passion of hers in order to reach out to other child abuse survivors. Completion of this memoir has been a labor of love and is dedicated to the two sons who were a result of sexual abuse by her biological father. They died in 1976 and 1981.
Creating awareness of the ongoing problem of child abuse, specifically incest, is the basis for much of her writing. Brinda’s a member of the RAINN speaker’s bureau and offers child abuse prevention workshops as well. She enjoys doing writing workshops and speaking at conferences.
