Public Relations Consultant
Renee Janowicz has worked with LBC since March 2017. She brought her strong background in media relations, education issues, and event planning to this dynamic firm that thrives through teamwork.
Renee graduated from Michigan State University with a bachelor’s degree in journalism, and joined a small, daily newspaper that is part of the Hearst Corp. During seven years as its education reporter, she covered budget debates, contract negotiations, election cycles, curricula initiatives and, her personal favorite, the energizing atmosphere inside many a classroom. Through those years and three more as the paper’s news editor, Renee picked up numerous awards for reporting and writing. She won Hearst Corp.’s prestigious Eagle Award for all-around excellence.
After moving to New Jersey, Renee used her experience to benefit clients ranging from public schools to arts organizations to corporate foundations. She designed and led campaigns for school bond issues, and she provided strategic guidance and organizational legwork for a public school’s highly successful tuition program.
Renee also wrote feel-good stories for the Courier-Post’s community news sections and contributed lifestyle pieces for magazines in southern New Jersey. She is a member of the New Jersey School Public Relations Association and an active participant in the Non-Profit Leadership Group of the Burlington County Regional Chamber of Commerce.
Renee mixes business with pleasure as she uses her organization and public relations skills for the good of her community. She has volunteered as a preschool director, a soccer club registrar, a PTO president, a theater club leader and the organizer of several charitable endeavors. For about 10 years she has helped promote the amazing array of Fourth of July activities in her tiny town of Riverton.
Renee and her husband Jon are raising two terrific young adults. They all love to cook together and travel together, although sometimes that’s done virtually while gathered around a television.
