As a retired retail executive, Renee started taking Pilates to ensure she stayed healthy by improving the strength and flexibility of both her mind and body as she moved on to the next exciting chapter of her life. Renee’s love of Pilates was instantaneous, so she jumped at the opportunity to train at The Pilates Center of Cincinnati to become an instructor. Having watched a loved one lose complete mobility, Renee understands and values the benefits of a healthy and active lifestyle and enjoys helping others achieve their health and fitness goals through Pilates.
After graduating from Bowling Green State University with a BA in Fashion Merchandising, Renee and her husband Doug, enjoyed exploring life in other areas of the country going wherever her husband’s company sent them – living in 8 cities and 4 states in 8 years. Finally settling in Cincinnati, afforded her the opportunity to enjoy a long and successful career with Luxottica Retail and to give back to her community by becoming a voice for abused and neglected children. If you talk to Renee, you will learn that she considers her 16 years as a CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) to be one of the most rewarding experiences of her life. She continues to be a voice for children by serving on The Board of Trustees for PARACHUTE: Butler County Court Appointed Advocates.
Renee values spending time with her husband, family and friends. She is a foodie who loves to cook, hike, go to concerts (favorite genre is jazz), attend the theater and play around with photography.
