Renee is an aspiring author, college professor, military veteran, serial entrepreneur, and mother of an amazingly gifted son. Since her time in the Navy, her companies have focused on helping people realize their dreams. Today she mentors the next generation of entrepreneurs while leading the charge to change the way people view suicide.
A Liberty University graduate with a background in military journalism, she holds a Bachelor’s in Psychology and Communication, a Master’s in Business Administration with a focus on International Business, and a Doctorate in Crisis Intervention. For a brief moment, she decided to focus on becoming a counselor and nearly completed her Master’s in Professional Counseling. However, she came to her senses and determined that she wasn’t particularly suited for patiently listening to stories of trauma.
Rather, her particular passion is to pioneer new solutions for age-old problems. This led to the development of The HEROES Project, a training resource intended to prove the possibility of preventing post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, anxiety, and manage stress. The promising results of that study have become the foundation of everything that is now the Command Post.
From years of experience with leadership training, professional development, and eliminating toxicity in organizational cultures, Renee brings incredible insight into the first-response profession. Her talent with translating research into practical, engaging, and insightful training programs has resulted in two Branden Hall awards for excellence.
At the core of who she is, Renee is a multiple trauma survivor. Her lived experiences are the very reasons she believes so wholeheartedly in the power of hope, resilience, and establishing a healthy tribe to prevent suicide. Today, she chooses to surround herself with other pioneers who live with passion and purpose. Of all of them, her son inspires her most.
