Her smile is the first thing you see when you enter our school office.  She may not be a teacher at New Gen, but Ms. Brenda has the amazing ability to connect with parents and students before any teacher even meets them.  She is constantly making sure that she keeps her finger on the pulse of the school.  Growing up in Norman Park, Georgia (a small farming community) Ms. Brenda would never have dreamed of the opportunities that God would provide her to come to New Gen School.

Ms. Brenda met Dr. Paula Gorman when her own grandchildren began attending New Gen.  She looks back on those days with fondness, “I loved the school and its passion.  I knew I had found what I wanted to do with my life.”

When asked what gem of wisdom she could share with us, Ms. Brenda answered, “Follow your dreams.  Don’t ever let anyone tell you that you can’t… Anything is possible!”

Ms. Brenda is married to Mr. Wayne Overby and has three daughters, eight grandchildren, and seven great-grandchildren.
