Renee Parsons was raised to lead with love, and she began helping others from a young age. Her childhood in the Midwest taught her how to thrive in the world of serving others. Growing up with parents in the hospitality industry, She learned how to handle people and properly run a business at just thirteen years old when she began working in her parent’s restaurant. This allowed her to dip her toes into the serving and accommodation business and gave her an idea of what she wanted to do as a career. Her love for helping others and her experience working in her family’s restaurant in her youth led her to attend Central Michigan University, attaining a BA in Hospitality and Business.

In 2012, Renee co-founded and launched the Bob & Renee Parsons Foundation with her husband, which is a nonprofit organization that strives to aid individuals and families living in poverty, especially focusing on low-income communities.
