Renée Krysko, Donor Relations Manager
Renée has a passion for people and creating connections. After serving Y2Y as communications manager for four years, Renée moved into the role of donor relations manager where her strong communications skills will enable her to forge important relationships with Y2Y supporters.
Prior to Y2Y, Renée worked with academics and company leaders to develop communications strategies and community relations programs for the University of Calgary's (U of C) Faculty of Engineering and Trek Travel, a luxury cycling tour-company. Born and raised in Alberta, and as a skier, hiker and cyclist the Yellowstone to Yukon region is both her home and playground.
Additionally, as a graduate of the U of C's Canadian Studies program, she has a deep understanding of this region's importance to our history, culture and economy.
For the past eight years, Renée split her time working in Canada and Europe. The striking difference in the number of wildlife in the mountain regions of Europe relative to her home left a strong impression on her and a renewed desire to protect it. Renée looks forward to using her talents in support of the Y2Y vision.
After living and traveling the world Renée is proud to call Canmore home. When not playing outside, Renée spends her time studying and teaching West African dance and Hip Hop.
