Renee lives in Mt. Shasta, Ca on the slopes of one of the southern-most Cascade volcanoes. She grew up in the Shasta Valley at the foot of Mount Shasta on her family's cattle ranch. Currently the executive director for Siskiyou Land Trust, she works on community conservation and private conservation projects right here where she grew up.
Much of her time outdoors is spent locally, where she is surrounded by wilderness areas, mountain ranges, alpine lakes and year-round opportunities for adventure.
