The Reverend Renée Rico confesses to be both excited and challenged by the opportunities of ministry in these times in the church. She received her undergraduate degree in Mathematical Economics from Pomona College, and had a first career as an analyst and manager working for the Environmental Protection Agency in Washington DC. Upon graduation from San Francisco Theological Seminary with a Master of Divinity degree, Renée began her “accidental intentional interim” ministry career, serving in churches across the West as interim solo, head of staff and associate pastor positions in both the Presbyterian Church and United Methodist Church. Most recently, she served as the transitional pastor for University Presbyterian Church in Fresno, CA.

Outside of church, Renée has many interests, including a love of Mexican food, knitting (she teaches and designs her own line of patterns) and fiber spinning, and is a certified aquatics fitness instructor. Her two cats, Izzie and Brandy, are her companions at home.
