with Rene Steelman, President of Steelman Family Foundation
Rene Steelman is a veteran of the US Navy and served in an era of few woman recruits and lots of sexual harassment. She learned early in her career as the only woman in the Navy photo lab that she had to fight for her rights and respect. As a wife, mother, and grandmother, she has accumulated a wealth of wisdom, experiencing some by choice, while others by the life’s journey she is presented with.
Her mission is to bring hope, value, and strength to others as they journey through life’s challenges by letting them know that they are not alone. She believes that we have been placed on earth to lift each other up, to bear one another’s burdens, and to help each other rewrite our life’s plans as needed.
