"I've worked with hundreds of journalists over the course of more years than I care to remember and Renée is one of the few who stands out. She is resourceful, doggedly diligent, and a pleasure to work with. Without reservation, I would hire her immediately if a position were available. Somebody hire her now!"

Renée taught me how to build a website, from scratch, on WordPress. I had never built a website before, but by the time we were finished I not only had a site with functional and beautiful pages, I was also able to rebuild, change, and manage the site on my own. Her patient guidance pulled me through and I value what I learned from her: I can do it!

Our high school class decided to take English Country Dance lessons after reading Pride and Prejudice and it was the highlight of our year. We hired Renée Camus and she was fantastic. She’s fun (highly necessary for high schoolers), kind, helpful, and extremely effective at knowing her audience. She’ll slow things down at the beginning and move people around in order for us to learn the dances quickly. That’s important so that we could get to the dancing. We were all surprised how much these teens loved it, to the point they looked forward to the next lesson. ECD is much more social and eliminates the awkward factor and keeps things fun and lighthearted. I can not recommend Renée highly enough. She’s a phenomenal instructor and fun and effective caller.

Renee just did a short-term transcription job for the Freelance Writers Den. She jumped right in and picked up our style quickly. Her work was impeccable -- and she knew when to ask questions and take direction. I'd definitely hire her for this type of work again.
