Since she was young, Glenda has had a passion for helping others. Life has always blessed her, so she believes in giving back. She has been a volunteer since childhood and has worked with several non-profit, multinational organizations.
Glenda has been fortunate to work in the public service sector, allowing her to meet many wonderful people, to appreciate others, and to be able to give back on a higher level.
As a Pro Bono Marketing and Public Relations consultant, Glenda has been involved with many non-profits in the greater Los Angeles area, such as The Taproot Foundation, The Archdiocese of Los Angeles, Mothers Fighting For Others, and now Music 4 Purpose.
Glenda is a member of Soroptimist International Santa Clarita Valley, which encouraged her to become more involved and volunteer to improve the lives of women and girls through non-profit programs leading to social and economic empowerment.
