Glenda is a CPA and has an MBA degree from Harvard Business School, an MA in economics from Brown and a BA from Wellesley College. Although never having performed in or worked on a theatre production or in a theatre, Glenda attends live performances weekly, both in the Boston area and while traveling to other cities.

This position perfectly combines her work experience and extracurricular passions and is providing the theatre education that she missed in her earlier life.
