Renee's background as a nurse and social worker keep her working at the forefront of healthcare issues in Georgia. She has worked on health-related issues for seniors, those suffering from mentally illness, and children at both the local and state level.
In 2006, an important and little talked about issue was brought to Renee's attention: the Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children (CSEC). She was appalled to learn that children were being bought and sold for sex acts in our state and set out to do something about it. She has been a part of several key pieces of legislation and an advocate for the children in Georgia.
As a member of the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL), Renee is serving on the Hunger Partnership Initiative. The Hunger Partnership is a nationwide public-private partnership making healthy food available to hungry families.
