My better half, Joel, and me. We clean up nicely but enjoy getting dirty building things or enjoying the outdoors.

I prefer to see problems as opportunities, to see constraints as challenges, to blur lines, to ask questions, to listen, and to dig deeper. I believe in exceeding expectations, building long-lasting relationships, and achieving a triple bottom line. I also believe in beauty and hope.

 What others say about me:

"Renée has been fantastic to work with. She's intuitive and professional with her work, yet personal in her execution. To put it short, I think that is the great talent that she has. She's been the creative engine behind several important tasks with our company-including our company's logo-and has been able to put our company's vision into something that we and our customers can really connect to. Although I still haven't personally met her, she still transmits that essential 'personal' element in everything she does. That's the winning touch in any successful brand, and that's the winning personality trait that she offers." Paul Cebul, Co-Founder Reach Trade, Water for the Americas

“Renée has been a great asset to my company over the last two years. She has set the bar very high for her position. Renée keeps a level head even during the most stressful times. She has built client relations, brought in new clients and maintained relationships with our existing clients. Her maturity and talent will brighten and improve the atmosphere wherever she goes. It is a pleasure to know her.” Mark Kirkland, Owner, Kirkland Photography & Design, Inc.

“Renée is a fresh new talent, her works have been very well received at the Gallery. From a temporary exhibit, we have added her to our permanent stable of artists. Her images are innovative and have a new/old feel. Renée has a wonderful future ahead, as an artist with a unique style of her own." Marianne Gunter, Owner, Gallery Two Ten

"I have enjoyed working with Renée on several projects. She is very creative, detail oriented, and when I saw her work on my projects, I was very impressed with her ability to take ideas and words and turn them into tangible, attractive designs. Renée has gone above and beyond my expectations each time I've worked with her. I would highly recommend her work and her artistic design.” Luke Grogan, President, The Woodmoor Group

“Renée is an exceptionally talented young woman who I have had the pleasure of working with in her capacities as a graphic designer and writer. She is contributing to and illustrating a self-help book I am writing. Her keen editorial abilities, superb writing skills and creative intuition have been and continue to be invaluable as I work through the manuscript. Renée brings a can-do attitude to any task and approaches her work with energy and passion. Her civic engagement and community involvement is also to be admired. Most importantly, she is fun to be around and a great person to know!” Danielle Thompson, Health Care and Nutrition Policy Professional

“Renée's professionalism is to be admired and appreciated. You'll know she's the right person for the job from the very first meeting; her communication skills and ability to think creatively are presented with confidence.” Marie Patterson, Marketing Director, AngloGold Ashante 

"Renée is one of the most dedicated people I have had the pleasure to work with. She is focused, driven, and it shows in the high quality of work she produces. True talent is key when speaking about Renée and I would love to work with her again at any point in time." Alan Pfeil,
Brand Strategist / Content Creator

"Renée offers a passionate and committed approach to her work that often exceeded that of her peers during her time at SCAD both as a student and as a tutor. Her commitment to others becomes apparent immediately upon meeting her. I strongly endorse Renée both as a perspective employee and as a generous person committed to those other than herself." Jason Fox, Professor, Chair, Graphic Design, SCAD; Dental Illustrator

“I enjoy watching you work. You are methodical but your methods often result in a metamorphosis, which advances both the idea and the emotional coding." Professor Bob Newman, SCAD

“I have had the pleasure of working with Renée on a very unique creative project which has required her expertise and aesthetic sensibility to achieve the very specific and demanding results asked for by the author/creator C.H. Rockey. With Renée's help this fine art book has made great strides in its subtle artistry. We could not have made the progress we have achieved without her. I know her to very reliable, intelligent and a valuable colleague. I recommend her highly.” David Ball, Designer

"Just wanted to say you did a wonderful job, and I am so excited to see the printed product this week! Thanks so much for your great work." Annie Bickerton, Director of Parent Relations and Annual Giving, The Cambridge School of Weston

"Just wanted to write to tell you I admire the way you think beyond, create ideas & create concepts! A sincere applause!" Carla Paola Torres, Designer, Universal Notes

"Renée and I were classmates in the Graphic Design MFA program at Savannah College of Art and Design. Renée has a strong work ethic, excellent communication skills, and of course great creative abilities in graphic design. Renée is easy to work with because she is organized, has great time management, and is very collaborative. I know this first hand because we collaborated on many projects such as starting a graduate graphic design student organization. We also worked together to assist a professor in teaching a one-week high school summer course on the topic of poster design. Renée was also a peer tutor where she helped undergraduate students in their graphic design projects, and her patience and attentiveness was an asset in this job. In class, Renée was always helpful and insightful in critiques and very open to suggestions from her peers. I would love to work with Renée again on future projects, and I would recommend her to any future employer." Sherry Saunders, Professor of Graphic Design

“Renée is not only creative with her photography but very inventive in assisting us as we put together various marketing campaigns for our small business. Her support and efforts have been integral in getting our business up and running!” Lynne Ricks, Owner, State Farm Agent

"Renée, by far, is the best person we have ever had working in a design and promotional capacity for the Department of Fine and Performing Arts. Her professionalism, work ethic, graphic skills, and creativity were all exemplary. Moreover it was Renée's calm under pressure and enthusiasm for the work that will leave the most lasting of impressions. Her impact is such that, after several years have passed, we still miss her presence in our department very much. She is a gem and will enhance any organization fortunate enough to hire her. I highly recommend her!" Michael McCandless, Professor at Creighton University

“Renée's work is always done with the highest detail and creativity. I still get compliments on the work she has done for my company!” Jeremy Lane, Owner, Fast Lane Technologies 

"Renée is a creative, talented and diligent artist. She is inquisitive, intelligent and thoughtful and takes her craft seriously. She is interested and purposeful toward her work and strives to provide a challenging and productive result. Rene'e is fun to work with and always gives her best. If given the opportunity I would certainly enjoy working with her again." Brian Peterson, Big Fish Marketing

"Renée came in as an intern at Big Fish Marketing at a point when we needed the most help. She was able to hit the ground running without a lot instruction and was very detailed oriented to her craft. She offered creative and artistic solutions for our customers and was a joy to work with everyday. I would highly recommend Renée not only for her dedication to her work, but because of her artistic ability to capture each customer's uniqueness in her designs." Frances Munoz, UX Designer, Creative Director
