Brennan C. Wood

Job Titles:
  • Executive Director
  • Member of the Board of Directors of National Alliance for Grieving Children
Brennan was often asked to speak on behalf of Dougy Center as a teenager, sharing her experience alongside then Executive Director, Dr. Donna Schuurman. It was at such an event when she was 14-years old that Brennan was so inspired by what Donna was sharing that she vowed to become the Executive Director of the Dougy Center herself someday. She became a volunteer group facilitator at the age of 16, supporting kids six to 12 who had all had a sibling die. After three years of volunteering with that group, Brennan left Portland for the next decade-always sharing with those she met about the magic and importance of the Dougy Center. Brennan rejoined Team Dougy as the Receptionist and Program Assistant in 2004. After moving through many different roles, she became the Executive Director in October of 2015. Brennan is a member of the Board of Directors of National Alliance for Grieving Children, on the National Advisory Council for the COVID Collaborative, and a member of the Advisory Council for Hidden Pain. She previously served on the Board of Directors of Willamette Valley Development Officers (WVDO). She was a WVDO Star Bright Award finalist, a United Way Speaker of the Year, the 2020 Portland Monthly Light-a-Fire Awards Extraordinary Executive Director, and a 2022 Portland Business Journal Woman of Influence. Brennan is also a Dougy Center parent as her and her husband, Steve, bring their daughter Jordyn to Dougy Center after the death of both of her biological parents. Brennan is passionate about the mission of Dougy Center and would love to connect with you anytime about how you can support children and families who are grieving. Brennan serves on the Executive Committee through her role as Executive Director of Dougy Center.
