Brenda Balderas

Brenda joined Taylor Trim in 2018 as the Sales Coordinator for the team. She is new to the finish carpentry industry but has a mean talent for coordination! With over 10 years’ experience in streamlining process and data analysis, she brings a fresh perspective on process efficiency. Brenda also has a passion for spreadsheets and has quickly become the go-to for any spreadsheet issues. Along with her amazing data skills, Brenda has a knack for technology and has become the unofficial, in-house IT person. She can be seen rushing to her teammates’ aid when any computer issues arise.

Biggest Pet Peeve: “People who don’t use their turn signals, umm rude.”
