Renee was raised in Regina, Saskatchewan and after graduating high school moved to Edmonton, Alberta. After meeting her husband and beginning a family, they decided to move further west.
It’s a natural curiosity to wonder how someone decides to choose the funeral profession as a career. Renee says, “Losing loved ones of her own at a young age gave me perspective that funerals or celebrations are tributes and an extremely valuable part of the grieving process. Understanding this has inspired me to pursue a career offering that help and support to families through their times of tragedy and loss.”
Soon after the death of her father, Renee joined Alternatives Funeral & Cremation Services® in Vernon and Armstrong, BC.
“I am very excited to be a part of the team at Alternatives Funeral & Cremation Services® where I feel that my personal and professional experience with loss will help me provide the kindness and compassion that people deserve at the time of a death”.
In her free time Renee takes advantage of the beautiful Okanagan weather where she spends her spare time at the beaches with her daughter. Renee also enjoys hiking in the outback with her dog, and in the winter you’ll find her at the rink strapping on a pair of skates or up in the mountains snowshoeing.
