President – Brenda Bromley
Brenda is a retired RN who grew up on a farm in western Michigan, where animals were always the central part of life. Her mom bred Boston Terriers so they always had dogs and puppies to love and train. Brenda fell in love with Cavaliers and began showing and breeding them in 2002. Her mother Jean later partnered with her until she passed away in 2017. Jean always loved her Bostons, but there were several things about them she would like to have changed. In her eyes the Cavaliers were perfect and she wouldn’t change a thing. Faith, the first champion Brenda bred, will be 15 this summer. She is still the reining queen of the house, although she sleeps a lot more these days. Brenda is also very proud of her Lenny, who was the #10 ranked AKC Champion Cavalier in 2014.
Brenda has been a member of the Great Lakes Cavalier Club since 2010, and has served as Vice President since 2013.
Vice President/ Breeder Referral / Web & Media – Jennifer Lee
The Lee family inherited their first cavalier from a breeder friend years ago. Jennifer became interested in breeding and showing in AKC Conformation classes and found a mentor in Brenda. Jennifer joined the Great Lakes CKCSC Club in 2014. She began helping with flyers and graphic design related projects within the club. She has made many wonderful friends within the Great Lakes CKCS Club. In 2014 the Lee family became a foster home for Cavalier Rescue USA. In 2015, Jennifer was blessed with the opportunity to combine her love of cavaliers, photography & design and began to reconstruct the Great Lakes CKCSC website that was launched in 2016. In 2017 she began serving as the club Secretary, and continues to serve as the Breeder Referral and Webmistress.
