Renée grew up in Citrus Heights, CA. She began playing with makeup at about 8yrs old, when would use her twin sisters and best friends as models. She took notes from her professional opera singer mother, and from her high school theater program. She found herself doing her friends’ makeup and hair for homecoming and prom.
Before deciding to continue her promotion of self-love in a new field, Renée spent years helping people build trust and confidence as a wilderness therapy guide.
Between 2009 and 2010, Renée spent 18 months in Brazil. She is fluent in Portuguese
Throughout the years, Renée did makeup and hair at the occasional wedding or special event when asked.
In 2016, Renée studied Cosmetology at the Elite School of Beauty. Her reasoning for turning her hobby into a ‘jobby’ was simple and pure: “Each person is worth feeling beautiful, whatever that looks like for them. Recognizing their value as a person with taste, likes and dislikes, and creative ideas. The world would be a better place if every individual recognized their worth.”
