You might know Renée from her work as a volunteer coordinator for the Thurston County Vaccination Clinics. As that project ended, Renée joined United Way full-time as Director of Corporate Engagement. She'll work with Workplace Campaigns.
We asked Renée a few questions to get to know her more. Here's that conversation. Enjoy!
Before joining United Way, what were a few highlights from your working life?
I was a Senior Marketing Manager at Intel Corporation for over seven years. Before that, I was Senior Benefits Program Manager at TrueBlue, responsible for implementing the Affordable Care Act into a temporary staffing company with over 750,00 temporary staff. I also worked for the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the King County Prosecuting Attorney's Office.
What will your day-to-day duties be at UWTC?
I'll help with fundraising during the campaign season and community engagement throughout the year.
When you're not working, what do you enjoy doing?
I enjoy spending time with my children and grandchildren, gardening and walking my dog.
Do you have a mantra or favorite quote to share?
