About the Author

Trust your author! Brenne takes her research and reporting seriously. All articles written on this website were thoroughly researched from from primary sources. If I’m writing about state licensing, I go to the appropriate government sites for information. If she is writing about a school, she goes to the school website. Sometimes, she may even call or email the organization, school, or other entity, if she cannot find the answer to her question on their website.

Brenne has been involved in graphic design and desktop publishing since the early 1980s, where she manually put together a monthly newsletter for Merrill Lynch Relocation Management in White Plains, NY.  Done strictly on a voluntary basis, Brenne enjoyed covering events at the office and gained a knack for coming up with original headlines.  The newsletter was produced using an IBM Selectric iii electric typewriter. The articles were cut and pasted to fit together in newspaper format.

Brenne got her first personal computer (pc) in 1993 – just at the time for the public launch of the World Wide Web (www). Her creativity and curiosity introduced her to multimedia software and hardware, which evolved into making multimedia presentations for local clients in southern California, including the City of Los Angeles.  Sometime that year, Brenne started her first company, Cherub Communications.  Website development, graphic design, and digital sound recording and mixing became a lifetime interest.
