Rena works with women worldwide to do something they have rarely done before – put themselves first. Her passion is to guide women into a self-full mindset, to design a path of greatness toward achieving their personal and professional goals. Her methodology is to help women create purposeful tribes in a culture of empowerment and advancement without competition.
Rena also serves as an executive coach, guiding leaders and their teams through fear and uncertainty. She essentially helps teams transform into Tribes as they develop a deep sense of trust and respect together while discarding guilt, shame, and resentment, which often paralyze teams into stagnation. Together, the tribes move forward with positive visioning, team agreements, and authentic belonging, all in empowering themselves as individuals and the tribe together.
Rena and her husband Bryan reside in Oregon and have six grown children and eight grandchildren. She loves to cook for her family and friends, paint, bake elaborate cakes, and enjoy the outdoors.
In 2018 Rena Founded BeingTribal, a subsidiary of her parent company Polallie, LLC.
