Originally from Cleveland, Renee has been a Washington, DC resident for almost 40 years. She is now blissfully retired from her career as a business and personal coach. She still loves coaching and, for several years, has coached care partners and loved ones of those with dementia through a program she developed and offered through Jewish Family Service. Renee says, “Like so many, I am more engaged now than I was when I was working!”
