Kelley Rene, a graduate of Pamplin College of Business at VA Tech, is an author, speaker, publisher, and life enthusiast. After thirty-three years of marriage, five children, fifteen moves, two continents, and numerous volunteer and paid jobs, she loves to share her arsenal of globe-trotting experiences and lessons learned. Traveling is her passion, and meeting new people is often the inspiration for her stories. With a longing to be a conduit of God’s love and a catalyst for forgiveness, she adopted Rescued and Redeemed as her mantra.
Along with her contribution in the anthology, Next Chapters Unleashed, Kelley published three novellas, Saving Sabine, Romanian Runaway, and Kamilah. She collaborated on the Christian nonfiction project, Embrace The Journey, which hit Amazon’s #1 Best Seller List in November 2021. She also writes and edits for Voice of Truth magazine, an online publication.
Kelley joined Toastmasters in 2019 and quickly realized she’d stepped into a family of cheerleaders eager for her to grow into a better communicator. As a natural leader, she found her place as Vice President of Membership (two years) and currently as President of her club. In 2021, she broadened her reach, serving as the Administration Manager for the district.
Having completed Level 5 of both the Innovative Planning and Presentation Mastery Pathways, she is closing in on her goal of Distinguished Toastmaster.
Her high-energy and tall-tales combine to teach important life lessons in a fun and engaging way. Recently, she received rave reviews as the MC for a military retirement ceremony.
