ABOUT

RENEE

STARTING AT AN EARLY AGE, MY PARENTS PUT ME IN EVERY SPORT UNTIL I FOUND WHAT I TRULY LOVED: GYMNASTICS AND LACROSSE. THE COMBINATION OF THESE SPORTS TAUGHT ME PARAMOUNT SKILLS: BEING A TEAM PLAYER, LEADER, DISCIPLINE, STRUCTURE, AND A LARGE DOSE OF HEALTHY COMPETITION. ONCE GRADUATING FROM BUFFALO STATE AND HANDING OVER MY LACROSSE JERSEY TO AN EAGER AND WELL DESERVED FRESHMAN, I INSTANTLY FELT A YEARNING FOR THAT COMPETITIVENESS AND TEAM CAMARADERIE. THAT DESIRE ULTIMATELY BROUGHT ME OVERSEAS SOUL SEARCHING THROUGH THAILAND, LEARNING ALL ABOUT BUDDHISM AND YOGA WHICH HAVE HAD A PROFOUND INFLUENCE ON ME. INEVITABLY I LANDED THE JOB I WAS SEARCHING FOR HERE AT HIWB TURNED PWR, PURSUING MY YOGA AND TRAINING CAREER.
