Councilmember Brenda Dickinson
Born in Corry, Pennsylvania, and raised in Canoga Park, California, Brenda moved to Douglas, Arizona in 1979. She has lived in Prescott Valley for over 26 years. Early in her career, she worked for several years as a Legal Secretary in numerous law firms both in Southern California and in Huntsville, Alabama. In 1974, she went to work for the Navy as a civilian at the Fleet Analysis Center in Norco, CA, then transferred from the Department of Defense to the Department of Transportation in 1977, and went to work for the Federal Aviation Administration in Air Traffic Control. Due to upward mobility, for the next several years she moved around the Western Pacific Region spending time in Palmdale, CA, Ukiah, San Diego, Riverside, Douglas, AZ, then Tucson, and finally Prescott Valley in 1994. As a result of privatization of Flight Service and a contract with Lockheed Martin, she ended up retiring in 2005. At that time, she went to work for IT at LM in Prescott Valley for nearly three years and was offered a buy-out in 2008.
Shortly after moving to Prescott Valley, and in her spare time, Brenda used her years of experience as a competitive dancer to become a dance instructor for the PV Parks & Recreation for two years. She also volunteered as a member of the Board-at-Large for Yavapai Big Brothers and Big Sisters while being a Big Sister for two Littles. Brenda is currently a member, Liturgist and Chair of the Bell Ringers for the Salvation Army for Prescott Community Church. She is also a member and volunteer of the Prescott Valley Chamber of Commerce.
Having been actively involved in partisan politics for several years, she is prepared to work in a nonpartisan environment, and excited to be representing the Town of Prescott Valley. In the past few years, she has attended numerous Citizens Academies for the Town of Prescott Valley, the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors, and the PV Police.
Brenda is considered a loyal and devoted worker in all that she does. She has chosen to retire in Prescott Valley and live here for the rest of her life. She admits she loves living here, and is committed to doing her very best as Town Councilmember, and believes, with God’s blessings, that the best is yet to come.
