FOUNDER & CEO

1Q7A0124.jpg

Renee had her first experience working with small businesses growing up in a family-owned business. She learned all aspects of marketing, as well as the hurdles and challenges that small business owners go through. From working for the family business to expanding her work into other small businesses on the island and Boston, from real estate to event planning, Renee gained invaluable insight into what it takes to make a small business thrive in their communities.

During her time in college, Renee played Division II College Soccer while attending Bentley University, a business school outside of Boston, where she earned two Bachelor of Science Degrees in Marketing and Environmental Sustainability with a Minor in Sports Business Management. Attending a business school was important to Renee as she wanted to gain a full understanding of how businesses operate in order to be able to see the full picture when creating a marketing plan for a business. Renee has made it her mission to help small businesses on the East Coast grow.
