It is unique in this age of high-tech pitches and 24-7 news on television and the worldwide web to find someone who will take the time to personally craft a story idea for a local audience. Renee has Utah television viewers and web news consumers in mind when she pitches a story proposal and throughout the process of assisting a producer, reporter, and video crew in bringing that story full circle. It is a gift and a craft that is hard to find these days in the public relations professional.
Renee is someone you can trust to get an important project off the ground and onto both big and small screens. She can help a large organization promote its product or a small business bring its goods and services to the attention of the public.

“As senor vice president I worked closely with Renee as she managed all aspects of our real estate marketing for Talisker, a real estate company based in Park City, Utah, that owns diverse products including upscale real estate communities, private club, a luxury hotel, two dozen restaurants and Utah’s largest ski resort.
In particular, I found Renee exceptional at:
- Her ability to manage other content providers when tasked with getting larger projects complete that included multiple divisions within our organization.
- Her unique ability to both write original content and to edit content provided by others in order to preserve their voice when appropriate. This is particularly noteworthy in the social media, real estate website blog and online marketing aspects of our company.
- In a world of creative types, she is one of the few that can keep her eye on the ball for repetitive opportunities and tasks to be accomplished, acting as an art director pulling together copy from the sales agents, directing the creative team and ensuring overall cohesiveness to our brand standards.
- She is extremely creative in ensuring every opportunity is explored in this fast changing world of marketing, and is not afraid to learn new skills to keep ahead of the curve.

“As the director of media and public relations, Renee was tasked with a formidable dual challenge: putting a lesser known destination on the map, and focusing the media story around our hotel once she had the attention of the press.
Renee, through her journalism background and connections, her careful management of the process, her personalized attention to travel writers, and her flawless organization of press trips was very successful at achieving and exceeding her goals with a relatively modest PR budget.
Eventually Renee moved on and became a founding member of Mexican Pacific, a high quality destination guide, website and magazine that played a major role in positioning the destination with the media. Renee’s professionalism and high quality work now benefited many others in the destination.
I am happy to provide this recommendation for Renee as I would enthusiastically welcome her as part of a PR and marketing team should the opportunity present itself.”
— Marcos Casillas, Managing Director, Rockbridge Capital
“Renée is an excellent person to work with: very creative, proactive, and professional. She has extensive knowledge of and experience with public relations for luxury hotels, eco hotels , and spas . She pays great attention to detail, and her PR work was fundamental in the launch of our second boutique eco hotel, Azulik. Renée is a self-starter by nature, with excellent organizational skills, dedication, customer service skills, and reliability.
Renée is a valuable asset for any team, both on a professional and a personal level. Put simply: she gets the job done well and is a lot of fun to work with. She has a very positive attitude and is always enthusiastic about her work. It was a pleasure to work with Renée, and I hope to have the opportunity to do so again in the future.
I would not hesitate to recommend her for any position in the area of marketing, PR , or media, as she has ample experience in all of these areas.
— Holly Worton, author / business mindset coach, former owner of Enchanting Group
“I have relied on Renee’s expertise since 2006, and often marveled at her mastery of all of her clients’ programs and services as I received fast and complete details from her on Tesoro Resorts, La Zebra, EcoTulum and others. Large or small, her clients are always given great attention, as evidenced by the material she sends to me. Thanks to Renee, her clients have often enjoyed ample coverage in my pieces.
Renee has always been a wonderful asset to my own work, and I can only imagine the thrill it must be for her clients to have her represent them….She is always organized, perceptive and ready with answers—all qualities that I, and other editors I know, love about her.
