Brenda Jean Patrick (born 1955) is a Texas-based educational consultant primarily known for her position within the educational community that students and parents are customers that the educational system must serve.[1][2][3]

Patrick first received public attention during her tenure as a master consultant with the Region 10 Education Service Center, where she was one of the first consultants to bring the concept of customer care to school districts in Texas.[4][5] This work has resulted in heightened awareness among school administrators of the need to strengthen the lines of communication with parents, businesses and the community in order to increase student achievement in all areas of academic endeavor.[6] These programs utilize customer care strategies and techniques that have been effective for companies in industries serving large numbers of customers.[7][8][9]
