Get to know you
Discussion and Q & A
Brenda Hudson is a teacher, editor, and writer. Her passion is helping others express themselves through writing.
Brenda holds an MS in journalism from Boston University and a PhD from the University of Minnesota’s Department of Writing Studies. She is also a credentialed journal facilitator through the Center for Journal Therapy. She has worked at NBC News and the BBC, and as a health sciences writer and editor. Currently, she teaches expressive writing at the Loft Literary Center in Minneapolis (where she has received its Excellence in Teaching Fellowship in two consecutive years), the Madeline Island School of the Arts, and through her business Voiced Life.
She believes in the power of words and is honored to be a part of Zoe’s Story. “Throughout my life, writing has helped me figure things out. As a child, I would write letters to myself in my journal, expressing thoughts and asking questions I could not in any other way. Writing is a central part of my adult life too, as a teacher, editor, and creative writer. I’m excited to offer a fun and supportive environment, where Warriors are encouraged to explore who they are and what they think and feel.”
Zoe’s Story Executive Director
Tekeisha Zimmerman is the co-founder and Director of Zoe’s Story, a non-profit organization that provides access to journaling as a way to cope with rare disease. After her daughter’s diagnosis in 2016, she wanted to support the CRMO community in a way that would help raise awareness while supporting the emotional well-being of children and caregivers affected by the disease. Her own love of writing has led to publications in journals and textbooks, and most importantly, the recent launch of Zoe’s Story. When not supporting Zoe’s Story, Tekeisha works as the Learning & Performance Manager for a large global organization.
