Renee Sedillo, 50

“Regardless of what is going on in my life, I believe that there is always something good out there and always something to be grateful for.”

“How you feel about yourself inside will bring out the true beauty.” 

A fierce mama bear, Renée is a wise and loyal caretaker who will tell it like it is. Optimistic and positive, she  believes that what you say and think becomes reality. “If you want good you have to think and say good. If you want abundance, you have to think and say abundance.”

Raising three strong and independent women has impacted her, and Renée considers this her greatest accomplishment. In her 40s, she experienced a significant point of change: “I realized that I gave so much to many that it was time to finally give to myself. I realized that it was okay to love who I am, what I have accomplished, and what I do for the world. I realized that my size doesn’t determine my worth and that I earned every bit of the body I have.”

Renée loves God, spending time with family, dancing, reading, and cooking. She feels peace and healing, and rejuvenation when she spends time around the ocean.
