Brenda Hummel-Foreman

My name is Brenda Hummel-Foreman. I live in Polk City with my husband, Dan Foreman, my 17 yr old son, Sal, my 13 yr old daughter, Andrea and my 5 yr old son, Zach. I have been employed by Valiant Wealth for 10 years as director of financial advisor client relations. I can usually be found at an athletic event for my oldest son, at a 5k for my daughter or on the playground with my youngest son. I am passionate about advocating for inclusion and ability awareness for my daughter. I am a board member for Team RunFree where avid runners (navigators) use running carts for those who are unable to run (captains) to give them the experiences and joy of running. 
Andrea is currently in 8th grade. I am her voice to make sure others meet her where she is while challenging her as well. She is a wheelchair user and non-verbal. She requires full care but is a happy, healthy and sassy teenager. I strive to view life through my daughter's eyes.
