As the Office and Human Resources Manager for OKW, Renee is an integral part of the firm. With nearly 10 years of experience, she oversees all administrative functions and staff, manages HR and recruiting responsibilities and provides support to the Principals of the firm. Renee received a masters degree in counseling from DePaul University, where she developed strong communication skills critical in cultivating the work environment and culture at OKW.
Growing up just outside of Chicago, Renee has always had an appreciation for the impact that local architecture and design can have on a city. Having studied in Chicago for both her undergraduate and graduate degrees, she fell in love with everything this metropolitan city has to offer. Renee lives in the South Loop neighborhood with her husband, Steve, a practicing licensed architect. Together, they share a passion for design and culture. The two of them are always planning their next worldy adventure (up next, Italy!)
