Renée jokes that she chose architecture because it started with an “A,” and it was at the top of the list her counselor gave her. Actually, she always knew she wanted to be an architect. René built forts on family camping trips as a child, using materials she found in nature. At home, she would wait for her mother to leave the house so she could rearrange all the furniture. Renee attained a bachelor of arts in environmental design from Texas A&M University, is licensed in Texas and Arizona, and has been at MNK since 2005. She finds inspiration from witnessing the positive reactions people have when they experience her design work. Reneé is most motivated when told that her vision is “impossible” to achieve.
