Bookkeeper / Receptionist

Brenda Wilson was born in Louisiana, but has claimed Dallas as home since she was a toddler. Brenda joined the CRAC staff in 1981, and hails as the accountant and the Saturday Receptionist. Having graduated from SMU with both BS and MS degrees in Economics, as well as having taught Economics at Brookhaven College for 25 years, she is certainly more than qualified to "crunch the CRAC numbers!"

Long distance travel, especially to Europe, crocheting and revitalizing her "seasoned" Red Oak retirement dream home constitute Brenda’s productive leisure time. A favorite destination, for long weekend getaways, is the scrubby, mountainous scenery of New Mexico and the plethora of remote bed and breakfast inns. Finally, her furry family in Garland consists of 4 feral cats that she has tamed…sort of….or vice versa!

Public Relations Director

Bud joined the staff over seven years ago. One of Bud's hobbies is feline uber-acrobatics for which he has become legend here at Centerville Road. Bud came to us with a broken leg from which, after surgery and several months of non-stop petting, he fully recovered and can be seen racing about the lobby and literally bouncing off of the walls from time to time.

He also enjoys tanning and can be found in the yoga position 'sunning belly' most afternoons weather permitting. As part of his duties, Bud lays about, greets cats in carriers, and balefully stares at dogs. He also gives transfusions for very sick kitties when needed. He was recently promoted to director after months of hard napping.
