Like so many others, Renee Stout became interested in serving the senior community through a personal experience. She describes her grandmother as her “soul mate”. When her grandmother was diagnosed with cancer, Renee left sales job in Dallas to care for her in Rhode Island. Born and raised in central Connecticut, Renee earned a degree in marketing from Central Connecticut University. After spending a number of years in the manufacturing intdustry, and fresh from her Caregiving experience with her grandmother, Renee started working in sales and marketing for a senior independent living community and then later, an assisted living community, and an emergency medical transport service. Now, Renee has opened a new chapter as a Community Liaison with Vitas Hospice. She is thrilled with her opportunity to interact with clients and their families in this critical stage. One area of particular interest to Renee is in helping children overcome grief as the result of loss of a loved one. To this end, Vitas is proud to sponsor 23 children for Camp Conquer, a three day camp for kids ages 9-15. This camp is being held June 3-5, 2011 in Ana, Texas (north of McKinney). For more inforamtion about the camp, contact Diedra at (469) 450-2120, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
