Reena Vokoun, a native Wisconsin girl raised by strong, loving Indian, immigrant parents, received her BBA from the University of Wisconsin – Madison and her Masters from Boston University. Over the last 18 years, Reena has had a very successful corporate career in the Digital Advertising industry, working for major companies such as Reebok, Yahoo, Google, and many more. She is also a certified fitness instructor and has been teaching for over 10 years while also competing in dance and fitness competitions. In 2015, Reena decided to follow her lifelong passion and launched her own health, wellness and fitness company called Passion Fit: www.passionfit.com.
Although Lisa and Reena attended the same high school and college, their relationship flourished when they found themselves in San Francisco pursuing their careers. As driven, corporate women who came from the same predominantly white community and were daughters of immigrants, they soon recognized how much they could understand and empathize with one another. It is Reena’s devotion to her husband and sons, her family and heritage, and her steadfast ambition that truly makes her a remarkable woman. Today, she is able to gracefully reflect on the struggles it took her to gain comfort and confidence in her identity as a first generation Indian-American and she hopes Unveiled Beauty will do the same for other women. Reena truly wants women to celebrate what makes them unique in this world especially as they journey on the path of healing and personal growth.
