It is with gratitude that we welcome Brenda Byrdie as the SJC Volunteer Coordinator.
Born in Chicago, Brenda has worked for more than forty years in the hospitality industry. Starting at age fourteen in the church cafeteria, she would work in the concierge department for Marriott International. Introduced to jazz by her Aunt Jackie and her mother, who loved to sing jazz around the house, Brenda developed a love for music. “Seeing others respond with a smile is a joy,” she says.
