About Me


Welcome! Let me introduce myself….my name is Rene!  
I am the Executive Director & Founder of the Honeysuckle Foundation for Children with Cancer www.honeysucklefoundation.org  a founding partner of Bee-Causes  www.beecauses.com. a philanthropic clean nail polish company & author of Alicia’s Updates, a memoir about life during pediatric cancer treatment. 
Mentor, advisor, teacher & student I have taken on many roles in my life & have had the honor to partner with great people, brands, companies & charities.  I work with friends & family & our adventures are the basis of many laughs & great memories.  When you’re partners with your family every gathering becomes a business meeting where the input of even our littlest family members provide an invaluable perspective.  I am proud & committed to teach & provide hands on experience in business, community, philanthropy & common sense to the next generation. 
Some days it feels as though I have lived many different lives however, I wouldn’t trade one moment of any of them. I am a fierce advocate for the  people & things that matter to me & am always juggling various projects & researching new ideas.  The most important thing has always been to  share my experiences to help provide clarity to others . My opinions are my own & I will defend my position, but respect those who disagree. I believe civility & respect are sorely missing in today’s world & work to try and change that. One article, one interview, one project at a time.
 I have added a community forum to my site & invite you to join!  A bulletin board of ideas & people who look for something a little less flashy with more substance than social media.   I hope you check it out & share it with your friends.   I envision this as being our own little ‘Main Street’, this is an exercise in community building I want to see succeed.
