Brenda Blankenship is currently supporting the ACCESS mission as Systems Administrator. Brenda ensures our team has access to the technology and tools required to provide first class services to our students, clients and their families. Prior to joining the Information Technology team, Brenda worked as a Special Projects Coordinator where she was instrumental in the implementation of many process improvements. Brenda enjoys working in a support role and seeing how improvements she implements supports building brighter futures for our staff and clients.
Brenda graduated from Arkansas State University in Jonesboro, Arkansas with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Data Processing. A highlight of her time at ASU was becoming fast friends with Tammy Simmons, Executive Director and Co-Founder of ACCESS Group, Inc. As such, Brenda and her family have been involved with the evolution of ACCESS since its beginning and have always been avid ACCESS supporters. One of her favorite ACCESS memories includes hosting the first EGGSTRAVAGANZA at her home - 22 years ago. That was a good day!
Brenda is the proud mother of four - three boys and a daughter - which many of her friends at ACCESS have helped raise to become four amazing young adults.
