Brenda became Doug’s legal assistant in October 2011, after immigrating to the States earlier that year. Once her daughter left home for college, it didn’t take much convincing by her Okie husband to get Brenda to agree to leave behind the snow and cold of Canadian winters and move to Oklahoma. Brenda loves Oklahoma; in particular, the extreme weather conditions of springtime. Brenda attended Canadore College of Applied Arts & Technology where she earned a Legal Secretarial Certificate. Upon graduating from Canadore, she worked a few short-term temporary legal positions before accepting a full-time position as a family law assistant at Miller, Maki law firm in Sudbury, Ontario, Canada, where she was employed for over 20 years until her move to Oklahoma. Brenda enjoys working with Doug and looks forward to many more years as his assistant.
