What do you do and why?
I am an entrepreneur and a USATF certified running coach. I am currently transitioning my running brand, Renner’s High, into a non-profit that helps teach people how to replace addictions with running! I have a strong passion for both running and helping others eliminate the addictions that are holding them back from living life to the fullest.
Tell us a fun fact about yourself.
Outside of running, I love to travel! My favorite city and country is Florence, Italy.
What change would you like to enact in the world?
My dream is to see everyone find their natural high in life. For runners, this is the “runner’s high” that convinces most new runners to trade in their bad habits for a new life of running. For others, this could be starting an organization that helps them give back more than what they have been given
Why did you join IVY?
When I first moved to Chicago and started up my Renner’s High, I knew that I would need to make connections across the city. I found IVY online and followed my gut to show up and see what happens. I made the right choice!
What has been your most memorable IVY Experience?
My first ever IVY event was the Winter Gala in 2017. This event stood out to me in many ways, and I remember being so shocked that I had found a perfect networking event and organization.
