& Serve.

Reneé Blanchard's mission is to nourish, empower and serve in whatever capacity she finds herself. Working for the Waterkeeper Alliance during the BP Oil Disaster brought her back home to Louisiana during a particularly difficult time for all those that depend on the Gulf for their livelihoods. Traveling through the bayous and swamps of the Gulf Coast with fishing families and environmentalists was a reminder of her origins and her cajun ancestors. She decided to stay and make New Orleans her home.
