Nurturing Faith, Elevating Business with Love and Patience

Hello! I’m Renea. Thank you for taking the time to stop by. This most likely means you clicked the link to find out more about me. Let’s pretend you are interviewing me because well, in reality, you sort of…are.

What drives you? What is the core of who you are?

Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ comes first in my life. It is He who gives me the strength to serve others and give timely advice, encouragement, hope, and create amazing things for my clients.

What am I passionate about?




That moment I was a keynote speaker for Procter & Gamble. The topic was “How Scent Affects Purchase Decisions”. I did a super fun workshop for them that included fragrance and making candles. Everyone loved it!

Do you have kids?


Throwback prior to marriages

I have a big family. I have three adult children with their spouses: Alexis and Ervin; Holden & Cherokee; Clayton & Starlette.

Thankfully, my children have blessed me with 9 grandchildren: Alecia, Shaylen, Koda, Karter, Elijah, Serenity, Myles, Sadie, and Brendan.

The blessings from the Lord.

Do you have any pets?




Biscuit is currently my only fur baby. He is a Schnoodle and quite hilarious.

Since I am blessed to have my brother with me, his adorable Lulu (aka Tater) is here. She is a…well, just have a look, and guess…

Lulu aka Tater

If you could be anywhere in the world, where would it be?


After seeing all the four seasons for the whole year on video in Italy, most likely would buy a home there and spend an entire year to go through all the seasons.

What are your hobbies?




Learning Italian.

Do you collect anything?

I have lost a lot in life, a fire and a flood, destroying two homes within six months of each other. I have also moved a lot in my life and gave many things away. I have learned to hold possessions loosely.


I collect stories and memories, funny memes, and precious things which I cannot collect with my hands. I collect them with my heart.

What is your most prized possession?

The Holy Bible.

What do you think would most impress your five year old self? Your 15 year old self?

Oh wow. Definitely the creativity part. My five year old self would be super proud of that and creating fragrances and oh, that I mastered cookie making. That would just be top level, grade A, accomplishments to her but this five year old would also be real disappointed that I got afraid of horses after I fell off on at 10.

My 15 year old self. Are you talking about this girl right here with the Ralph Lauren popped collar and the Farrah Fawcett winged hair? Ok.

  • I say “no” to things and people that are not right for me
  • being a Christian affects all my decision making not just something I do on Sundays
  • some of the things that were funny to me then are crude and rude now
  • I love classical music
  • History and Social Studies I actually like
  • Chemistry and Math ARE actually needed in my field of work,
  • and our family DNA is incredibly surprising!

What is your favorite season?

What is the bravest thing you ever did?

Spoke up and defended someone that others were bullying.

What is your favorite song?

Whose death hit you hardest?

My Mom’s death has been the absolute most painful of everyone, including my father, who was murdered.

Her passing 5/5/22 broke my heart.

My Momma right before she beat cancer.

What do you think is the meaning of life?

As Jesus said: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’ and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’”

What is your dream role?

The one I am in right now. Entrepreneur helping others

Taking care of others is taking care of business.

How do you deal with work stress?

  • Music- Classical, Jazz, and Lofi
  • Laughter/Making up skits and laughing a lot
  • Encouragement

If you lived 500 years ago, what do you think your profession would be?

A time machine mechanic.

It’s possible. A Time Machine Mechanic.

Just kidding. Probably a baker or chandler.

What was your first job?

10 years old I worked the weekend shift at Texoma Mobile Phone as a switchboard operator. This was not a constant thing but here and there and I loved doing it. It was fun!

lol. It wasn’t THAT long ago.

What was the hardest lesson you learned so far?

Letting go.

How do you take your coffee?

Seriously. Very seriously.

Espresso and I can’t really tell you. I have to look at it and see. It has gotten to the point that no one can make my coffee like me for taste and visual so I have to create the perfect cup at home.

Do you prefer working remotely or in the office?

Remote. I am a nomad.

Pretty much…

Do you prefer group work or solo work?

Doesn’t matter to me as long as the work is done right and efficiently.

Do you prefer emails, texts, or phone calls?

In this order:

  • Email
  • Text
  • Phone call

Emails are detailed and clear. I refer to them often. When phone calls are the main method of communication for projects, things are often missed.

Do you believe that people can change?


Do you believe you will accomplish your dreams?
