Get to Know: ReneePublished September 8, 2017 by Eva Tanenbaum in All Things Dance, Fun & Fashionable, Wishful Thinking
At A Wish Come True our coworkers and our customers feel like family. So we thought it was time for you to get to know our family.
Get to know Renee! She’s a dedicated yogi and dog lover with a 110lb German Shepard. Although she’ll never tower over you, at just just 5’2″, Renee is never without her high heels!
What’s your job title? Describe what you do.
I am A Wish Come True’s Marketing Director. I do a little bit of everything from photo shoots and event planning to interactive and print design. The diversity keeps me engaged and excited about my job and our industry.
What’s the most fun part of your job/day?
I love solving problems and making anything just a little but better.
Tell us a fun or funny memory from working at ‘Wish’.
Ah, that day I electrocuted myself at a photoshoot, soooo funny.
Did you dance as a kid? Do you still dance?
As a very little kid, maybe 3-5 years old. Do I still dance? Never, sometimes maybe… does every night in my kitchen count?
Where and for what did you go to school for?
University of Delaware for Visual Communications.
Did you have a different job before ‘Wish’?
I was a waitress/bartender for 10 years. I worked at Vogue Magazine and I designed memorial cards for funerals. I had those 3 jobs at the same time. I’ve always loved working.
What did you want to be when you grew up?
I liked those interchangeable fashion plates when I was little and drawing, but I never really wanted to be anything specific. When I started college, I met some graphic design students and fell in love with type, design and communication.
What are a few of your favorite things?
My husband, my daughter and happy hour.
What’s your spirit animal?
My daughter, she is an untamable wildfire!
What song best describes you?
My music taste changes too much with my mood. My favorite quote though is “Luck is when preparation meets opportunity.”
