A Bit About Me

Welcome! I'm Renae, a seasoned professional with a passion for leveraging digital platforms to tell compelling stories and build meaningful connections. With a diverse background in social media management, marketing, and communications, I've had the privilege of working with esteemed organizations such as United Airlines, Michigan State Athletics, and the Seattle Mariners.

My journey in the digital landscape began at Michigan State University, where I served as the Assistant Director of Digital Production and Social Media Manager, honing my skills in content creation and strategic planning. Over the years, I've been fortunate to contribute to the growth and success of various brands, including leading the social media efforts at United Airlines - Aviate Academy and driving the digital branding strategy for high school athletes at Weaver Digital.

My expertise extends to overseeing comprehensive marketing plans, developing and executing social media strategies, and navigating the ever-evolving landscape of digital storytelling. One of my proudest achievements is the substantial organic growth I've achieved for brands, exemplified by a 303% increase in engagement within the first three months of implementing a social media strategy at United Airlines.

As a storyteller at heart, I am committed to creating content that not only resonates with audiences but also builds authentic connections. My approach is rooted in data-driven insights, innovation, and a keen understanding of emerging trends. Whether collaborating with internal teams, fostering athlete narratives, or shaping the online identity of renowned sports organizations, I thrive on bringing stories to life in the digital realm.

Join me on this exciting journey as we explore the intersection of creativity, technology, and human connection.
