Our Team

We are your family medical practice team.

Brenda Mohl | Practice Administrator

Brenda Mohl is our Life in a Blender Practice Administrator with over 40 years of experience in the field of medicine – in fact, she first introduced Dr. Papotto to private practice in 1999!

Having grown up in High Point, North Carolina, Brenda has multiple educational degrees in medical management, and she has earned accolades such as the North Carolina Medical Manager of the Year! She is lovingly considered as the “maternal” figure of LIABFM, but would much prefer to be the “Liz Taylor” figure instead. Well, we can all agree she does sparkle like diamonds!

Brenda loves Jesus, music, the beach, cruises, Christmas, and especially her family – husband Laverne, four children, and sweet grandchildren. One of her favorite quotes is from John Maxwell and it defines leadership for her, “Knowing your purpose in life, growing to reach your potential, and sowing seeds that benefit others.”

  • Patient: “Hello, I'd like to schedule a doctor's appointment.”
