Working within the realm of community engagement for over 10 years, Renée has worked with nonprofits, city agencies, artists, volunteers, youth, and more to advance the work of urban sustainability and social justice. Her work has focused on building strong community-based programs and leading successful collaborative teams with a commitment to empowering communities.

Most recently, she has been dedicated to building strong communities (and soils!) through the art and science of composting. This work has included managing public space composting programs, leading workshops+trainings, facilitating community construction projects and collaborating with others on growing the movement around food waste prevention.
