MEET THE TEAM
Brendalyn is a native Texan who gained her BA in English creative writing from the Ohio State University.
Her professional career has been in media and technology sales with nearly ten years in recruitment advertising at the local newspaper in Austin, Texas. At the birth of their second child, she and her husband made the joint decision for her to stay at home as the primary caregiver. Because of her interest in technology and desire to stay up-to-date in the industry, Brendalyn pursued a Master’s degree in Educational technology, juggling mom duties with research.
Her husband’s job transfer took Brendalyn’s family to Nashville in 2015 where they enjoy the similarities between the two cities of Nashville and Austin both in the music/art scene and in innovation. As her children approached school-age, she started to seek an opportunity to return to the workforce and found Momsource Network through a friend. Immediately, she fell in love with Momsource Network both as a solution for employee retention for progressive employers and from personal experience as a candidate who sought this type of company. She loves learning new perspectives with a renewed wonderment about the world around us through the eyes of her children. This passion pairs nicely as a professional who can relate to and advocate for moms, dads, retirees or any professional that is seeking flexible employment to enjoy a more fulfilling work/life balance.
I’m a native Texan, raised in the Dallas area, and have been living in Austin since attending the University of Texas to receive my BA in Communications with a specialization in Photojournalism. I have a side business as a photographer, and love being able to capture timeless memories for growing families. I previously worked in sales/consulting for the commercial construction industry for 12 years before taking some time off to find a happy balance between work and home life. My husband Adam and I have been married for 8 years and have two young sons who keep us very active! In our free time we love to hike, bike, play at parks, float the river, and boat on the lake. When I’m not busy with the family I enjoy yoga, reading, and jewelry styling. I’m looking forward to bringing the MomSource concept to Austin and helping others find that “happy place” bridging their careers and families.
