I contributed to the project, as I'm a huge Wizardry fan.

That said, I'm pretty sure Brenda's role in Wizardry 1-7 was just to write the manuals, play test the games, and talk to people on the old phone hint-line (at least for the early games). Even as of Wizardry 7, her only listed credit was for writing the manual and documentation.

I know she has Designer credits on Wizardry 8, but I also think it's fair to say that a lot of Wizardry 8's design, though uncredited, really follows from D.W. Bradley's work on Wizardry 5-7. The races, classes, magic system, mix of fantasy and sci-fi, the major NPC factions, and even most of the story components like the Cosmic Lords, Cosmic Forge, Astral Dominae, etc. was his work.

Again, I contributed to the project and am hopeful, but I'm not sure how much design experience Brenda really has.
