Renee is a former executive who left her role at a Fortune 500 on a mission to see the world and reshape her views of humanity. After a life of living with an undiagnosed physical disability that has caused her to use a wheelchair full-time, she set out to find her place in this world.  She spent nearly an entire year globetrotting alone, just her and her wheelchair.

Through her travels to 118 countries, all 7 continents, and all 50 states, she become a Guinness World Record Holder.  Renee credits her travels and the people along the way who helped her – especially when the world was not accessible – that lead her down a path that allowed her to live authentically and come to terms with the person she is.
