Renee spent 18 years as a corporate restaurant manager for a New England chain that pride themselves on an unbeatable relationship-based culture with great business sense. During this time, her passion for people and food grew significantly as she began mentoring new leaders in the company and joined the tasting team for new menu items. In 2014, with the drive to provide additional skills and opportunity to her people, she joined the John Maxwell Leadership team where she became a certified coach and speaker. In 2016 with encouragement from friends and family, and her son by her side, she left the corporate arena to open Urban Farmhouse Eatery in North Hampton. She is happy to be serving the Seacoast community.
