11:00 Healty Strategies for Finicky Eaters
After twenty plus years teaching elementary aged children, Kay Renshaw decided it was time to turn away from teaching the 3 R’s: Reading, Writing, and Arithmetic to educating individuals how to be proactive with their health rather than reactive through holistic nutrition, fitness, and modifying behavior. She has been health coaching clients since 2011. Her burning desire is to be a lifelong learner by never becoming content with what she already knows. Kay’s key to success is to remember that it is never too late or too early. Right now is a good time. Life is now.

Born and raised in southeastern Michigan; Brenda received her BA in Speech & Drama from St. Mary’s College and her MBA from the University of Notre Dame. She moved to the Tampa Bay area in 1989, where she has been happily ensconced ever since.

That came in especially handy during the 10+ years she worked at the Crisis Center of Tampa Bay, as Coordinator of Volunteer Services, Office Administrator, and finally, as Director of Communications and Media.
