Brenda Carver has always been an inspiring entrepreneur. In 1985, she bought her first independent frozen yogurt store. Within two years, it became the single largest frozen yogurt shop in the industry. In 1987, she sold the business, but stayed on as manager — opening and managing five additional stores. She also developed a yogurt delivery service in order to cater the consumers in industrial buildings and high rises. Passionate about her product, Brenda convinced the “Price Club” management team to distribute her yogurt throughout the Price Club chain.
In 1999, Brenda and her husband Michael purchased The RJ Noble Company. For the last nineteen years, Michael and Brenda have grown the company and raised their children in this family working environment. The RJ Noble Company is now the single largest asphalt producing company in the United States. With over 150 acres between its plants in Orange and Corona, the company is positioned to offer the best service in the industry.
Brenda is currently president of “STM” Strength Transportation Management — a trucking company. She has a fleet of one hundred trucks and brokers fifty to one hundred additional trucks per day. She also owns two self-storages located in the City of Orange and Parker, Arizona. Brenda graduated from Brandman University in 2016 with a degree in Organizational Leadership.
Brenda has been very blessed in her life and enjoys giving back to the community. She served four years at the Orange Public Library Foundation and committed significant personal resources to educate and expand library services for children in the community. She served on the board of the Rancho Santiago Retreat Center in Silverado Canyon — a Christian retreat center. Brenda has been actively involved in other charities such as Taller San Jose, La Purisima Catholic Church, Rotary International and Chapman University. She currently serves as a Board of Governor at Chapman University.
Brenda and Michael Carver have been married for thirty three years and have two children. Their daughter, KaSondra, graduated from Chapman University in 2012 with a degree in Psychology. Their son, Austin, graduated from Brandman University in 2017 with a degree in Organizational Leadership.
