Getting to Know Brenda Snell!

GEM Welcomes Brenda Snell! It is with great pleasure and anticipation that we welcome Brenda as the newly created GEM Coordinator! Brenda brings vast public sector experience to the position as well as a long list of qualifications. Brenda worked for the City of Washougal for 13 years, picking up a variety of experiences that we were looking for in the GEM Coordinator position. She also did contract transcription work for the City of Vancouver for various meetings. Brenda’s experiences and qualifications include: finance, clerical, administration, grant writing, oral presentations, and a host of other skills.

On a personal note, Brenda is a native of Clark County, and has lived in the Camas area for the past thirty years. Brenda has been married to husband Marty for over eleven years and has a four year old son Tanner. Brenda says, “Tanner and our 90 pound Golden Retriever are inseparable – it’s quite the sight!” Brenda loves domestic “things” – cooking, decorating, and of course, being a mom and wife. She also loves to run, bike and swim – often participating in triathlons and the annual Hood to Coast Run.

Brenda will be assisting the GEM Board with meeting minutes, maintaining the GEM directory and contact list, tracking expenses and savings realized by GEM members, developing summary reports to show cost/benefit returns of GEM to member agencies, assisting with media releases and a whole lot more!

Please e-mail Brenda to introduce yourself and give her a friendly GEM welcome. Her direct e-mail address is: Brenda@gematwork.org.
