In 2006, the US Navy mobilized her as a reservist to full-time active-duty in Afghanistan. Be careful what you daydream about!! “Where’s the water,” she joked. She ended up in an Army boot-camp at age 40. Once in Afghanistan, Brenda met an amazing American woman who’d lived there for years. Betsy was helping Afghan women and refugee families with housing and emergency supplies, plus she was teaching Afghans how to economically sustain themselves by utilizing their embroidery talents to hand-make fashion and accessories for Westerners. Brenda is a “Jane of all traits, master of none,” who combined her past experiences as a financial advisor and a military officer to start Jo’el Worldwear. Now Jo’el Worldwear is reaching out to people everywhere, and Brenda’s daydreams about faraway places are really coming true!
