In an industry that moves quickly and changes often, reliability and stability are essential to the operations in our office. This is where Renee’s background, impeccable organization abilities, clear communication skills, and task-oriented approach make her a valued team member as Executive Assistant to our CEO, Scott Danner.
Renee joined the Freedom Street Partners team in 2020 and has a wealth of relatable experience that she brings to her role. She has held similar positions and most recently worked at Liberty Tax Service as the Executive Assistant to the CEO, CSO, and COO. While working there, she also held Transition Specialist and New Franchisee Advisor roles, allowing her to develop a unique understanding of the industry.
In her role with Freedom Street, Renee focuses on project management for the key initiatives within our organization to ensure that timelines remain on track, in addition to managing our CEO’s calendar and travel arrangements. Attention to detail is crucial because our entire team leads very demanding day-to-day schedules. Renee credits the success in her career to her loyalty and integrity. She strives to uphold both key characteristics each day, all while maintaining a friendly and welcoming demeanor that clients and co-workers associate with her.
Renee has always gravitated toward something more significant than herself – both professionally and personally – giving her a sense of accomplishment at the end of each day. She believes that her work at Freedom Street fulfills and exceeds these expectations because the mission of the organization extends beyond the company to give back and positively serve our community.
Although I have lived in Virginia Beach nearly all of my life, and I’m lucky to call it home, I was born in Italy, lived in Greece until I was five, and also had the chance to live in Utah for eight years. My husband, Jon, and I are fortunate to have two fantastic children, Christian and Alexis.
Outside of the office, I like to be on the go, just like I am during the workday. Jon and I love to entertain and spend time with those closest to us. I also like being creative and try new recipes or stick to my tried-and-true classics. Cooking and baking for our friends and family is one of my passions.
Keeping active is important to me as well, so you can often find me outside soaking up the fresh air and taking walks with my Boston Terriers. Whenever we have the chance, we take advantage of opportunities to travel and for fun, and I love to do karaoke every once in a while!
