Transformational & Recovery Coach, Renee’s  passion and purpose is be a vessel of hope, healing, and the triumph of the human Spirit. Her life is a testament to this. Renee experienced severe childhood abuse and trauma and developed food and codependency addictions to cover up the pain. Then, at 21, after a family tragedy, she had the courage to confront her painful past, heal from it, and connect to her wholeness, Goodness, and inner joy. She’s been in recovery for more than 20 years.  Now, she teaches others how to overcome their own obstacles and addictions to live an authentic, meaningful, successful life. Renee received her Master’s degree in Spiritual Psychology from the University of Santa Monica, did her spiritual counseling (chaplain)  residency at Rady Children’s Hospital, and is a certified life coach, studying with personal development guru, Bob Proctor of THE SECRET. Renee  speaks, coaches, and leads workshops all over the country–including women’s and men’s prisons.
