In 2003, Brenda began her career in the event industry as an Event Coordinator for one of the most premier event companies in Los Angeles, Along Came Mary Events. Brenda has produced events such as the Grammy After Party, movie premiers, fashion shows, Fortune 500 corporate anniversary extravaganzas, celebrity weddings, and much more.
In late 2009, Brenda and her husband moved to Greenville, South Carolina to be closer to family and launch cb events, a full service event production company. Her love and passion for events has never changed and it shows through her commitment to exceed her clients expectations as well as her own. cb events has produced events such as GHS Experience the Dream, Dragon Boat, Greenville Polo Classic, BMW Pro AM events, euphoria events, Charleston Wine and Food, Holy Smokes BBQ Festival, Southern Roots and much more. In 2014, she launched her second company Industry Event Rentals, a company specializing in lounge furniture and decor for your event.
In a desire to give back to her community, Brenda wanted to create a festival that was all about helping you become your best self. Her passion for festivals and the well-being of not just her family, but the community around her, is what drove her to create The NESS Fest in 2017. In the festival’s third year, Brenda’s passion to inspire and motivate the Upstate as a whole is stronger than ever.
In 2019, Brenda's husband Nathan opened Wine House, A Shop and Tasting Room. When she’s not off running her three companies like the boss that she is, you can find her at Nathan’s shop enjoying a glass of great wine (most likely still working on her computer, because those companies don’t just run themselves!).
Now coming into 2022 the calendar is full of amazing gifts that all give back to the communities she loves and supports. Excited to see where this year leads!
