Renee, a proud Hawaiian native, was brought up in a remote area of the Big Island, where basic amenities like water and electricity were scarce. This environment instilled in her a deep appreciation for life's simple pleasures, taught her the value of hard work for achieving goals, and ignited her creativity from a young age.

Her passion for self-expression blossomed through drawing, painting, and cosplay. Alongside her artistic pursuits, Renee excels in bodybuilding, earning the prestigious NPC North Americans Pro card in 2020 and winning the IFBB Tampa Pro in 2021.

Debuting at the 2021 IFBB Olympia as one of the first Wellness Olympians, Renee continues to soar in her athletic career. As a proud Animal sponsored athlete since 2020, she balances her pursuits with administrative support at J3 University, fostering an environment for learning and growth.

Renee inspires others to chase their dreams relentlessly, proving that with hard work, anything is possible.
