About KC Shepherd's Center

We are a greater Kansas City nonprofit serving older adults, celebrating their contributions to the community and providing support and companionship to increase social activity, reduce food insecurity and build lasting relationships.


About Brenda:

The entirety of my 35-year career has focused on improving health and wellbeing across the age spectrum in varying settings: corporate, non-profit, governmental and educational.  I've served as Community Chair, KCMO Board of Health Commissioners; President, KC Healthy Kids, a non-profit; Vice President, Mid-America Coalition on Health Care, a stakeholder think tank and as Director of Corporate Wellness, AVCA.  I am currently in my 15th season as Head Coach, Cross Country/Track & Field, Academie Lafayette K-8.

I am a long-time member of the Junior League, KCMO serving as a past board member. Other board service includes: the American Heart Association, Ozanam, Cultivate KC and at present, KC Healthy Kids and KC Shepherd’s Center as their Board President.  As part of this bio, I am to share a special achievement. After losing coaching in 2020 (Covid), I stepped onto the track after 33 years to race in the Senior Games 200m and 400m. I won gold in both, qualified for Nationals and achieved USTF Masters All-American status (400m time). I wanted to show the kids I coach that AGE is irrelevant-same hearts, same dreams and same drive. Commit with joy!

I have the support of my two loving sons, Mason and Bennett and outstanding parents who demonstrated it is an honor to give back to your community. I am involved with Prom with a Purpose to pass that lesson of service to my sons and lift up the challenges and celebrate the talents of our incredible, timeless seniors.
