Renee DuPerow is happy mother of 3 beautiful children. She became a single mom in January 2004 at the age of 16 to an amazing daughter. With the support of her mom and sister, she was able to obtain her GED and attend trade school at night while working two jobs.

She has always had a passion to help others and has always put others’ needs in front of her own. She volunteered many years with the Ronald McDonald House Charities and always had a passion for non-profit work. She was a member of SMU for a couple of years before obtaining her role as Secretary and then later Fundraising Coordinator. It brought her so much joy to see she wasn’t alone in the trials she faced. Her heart is all in this organization and she can’t wait to see the amazing things to come.
