The difference you ask?
Using original poetry, rapping and rhyming as a springboard, she connects with her audience right where they are and takes them on a journey of invaluable life skills through self-exploration and assessment.
Renée uniquely empowers and inspires through spoken word – yes, poetry! While learning the difference between a limerick, ballad, metaphor and haiku, Renee’s students are gently guided down a path of self-discovery resulting in increased self-esteem and decision-making skills.
Highly sought after for her poetic keynotes and unique presentations, her audiences gravitate to, and in fact connect with, her every word because she speaks their language, the Truth - in Rhyme!
Although formally trained as a legal secretary and having worked at some of the most prestigious law firms in the U.S., Renée sold cars, real estate, temporary office services, medical alert systems, drove limousines and was a marketing director before realizing the true search begins within and discovering her true love: Speaking.
A believer in her mother’s favorite adage “No knowledge is wasted,” this multitude of positions reinforced in her mind, and reflected in her life, what she has always known in her soul:
“You will have or be anything you choose.”
Committed to spreading this message, Renée is available for seminars, keynotes, speaking engagements and poetry recitations.
