Renee Rongen is a master storyteller, author, and inspiration. She encourages with integrity, applauds those that applaud her, and manages to bring a smile to the faces of people who are listening to her speak on sometimes serious topics.

She will be the speaker at Banner Health and North Colorado Medical Center's upcoming Girls Night Out. 

I chatted with her about that, and some other things as well.
