Her positivity and honest demeanor resonated instantly with her audience as she shared her inspiring story, which sparked laughter, tears and everything in between. To say the least, Rene’s infectious, sparkling self immediately captured our hearts. She was a pleasure to work with leading up to, during and following the event, and I couldn’t have asked for a more refreshing experience from an event management standpoint.

That is a testament to Rene and her commitment to the work that she does.”
