Renee has been editing for EssayEdge since 1998, when she was an English major at Harvard. The service actually began operating out of a dorm room as Collegegate. It has grown considerably since those early days. Renee has had varied interests over the course of her life and has tried to pursue all of them. She has worked as a veterinary surgical nurse and a wildlife rehabilitator until the birth of her own children made caring for injured and orphaned wild animals too challenging. Editing was the perfect vocation for a stay at home mom. As an editor, she enjoys reading the stories of each individual applicant and assisting them with attaining their dreams. She also worked as an elementary school librarian when her children were young. They are now grown and busy pursuing their own goals, one as a graduate of Emerson College in writing and the other as a culinary student at Johnson and Wales. Renee currently operates her own home-based business and is a member of an artisan co-op. Life is vastly interesting; there are so many ways in which one can make a difference.
