Renee was born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada. At the age of five she fell in love with tumbling! In high school she was on the dance team and drill team where she helped choreograph award winning routines. She also tumbled with Jim Jarrell Bounders for 15 years, and did full gymnastics for 3 years. She competed in regionals and other meets across the valley, placing very competitively with several 1st through 3rd places.
Renee went to college at the University of Utah and studied Criminal Sociology, where she met her husband Sven of 15 years. They have 4 beautiful children Iven(12), Allijean(10), Elizabeth(6), and Syvanna(3).
Renee is currently in training for her 3rd Ragnar Relay Race in October. She has also done the Las Vegas Triathlon and Mad Mud Run as well as other various 5Ks around the valley.
Other interests include: volleyball, swimming, reading, watching movies, hiking, camping, and hanging out with her family.
She also volunteers her time with church where she teaches children, and helps run a workout and a volleyball group.
Renee is excited to pass along her love for tumbling to all the Kids in Motion dancers!
