About Brenda

I am a modern day Mona Lisa — independent, expressive and relentless in living my next 30 years on fire.

I started blogging in 2011 after crying my eyes out in a dark theater watching Bridesmaids because at that very moment I felt like like the lead character, Annie — a big loser.

That movie marked the end of my midlife crisis and the beginning of my grand new life today.

I have a master’s degree in media communications and an undergraduate degree in journalism. Like Brenda Starr the ravishing reporter and cartoon I was named after, I live to report on ways to rock your midlife and live your dreams.

I love my life, cats, dark chocolate, red wine and well-traveled men.

I’m forever curious and ask too damn questions.

By day, I’m a PR Consultant for a Fortune 500 Kansas City company. By night, I heat up the keyboard at Midlife Mona Lisa.

My dream is to inspire midlife women and find a dashing man to travel the world with. Is that too much to ask? Hell no.

Throw on your tiara and follow my lead.
