As a former teacher and counselor, Renee Shalhoub, has always had a hand in guiding people toward reaching their fullest potential. She remains a lifelong student by investing in personal and professional growth programs, learning from others and finding meaning in the daily lessons that life has to offer. She lives in the New York Metropolitan area with her husband, Al, and their dog, Karma. Renee and her husband enjoy traveling to visit their four children, who live in different parts of the US. In her spare time, she does volunteer work, practices yoga, daily meditation and Reiki. It is her belief, that through prayer and practice, all things are possible. From Ordinary to Awesome is her life’s mission and the title of her first book.
