Segolene Renaze serves on the Young Professional Board at Great Rivers. She got involved at its inception in 2016 as a way of giving back to this great organization after having interned with Great Rivers the year before.
After finishing law school at Washington University where she will graduate from her LL.M. in May 2019, Segolene will take the NY bar exam to become a lawyer. She enjoys volunteering with different organizations such as the Sierra Club as a member of the Eastern Missouri Group Executive Commmittee, and Washington University’s Environment and Energy Law Society. Although she misses her home in Brittany, France, she likes Missouri’s outdoors very much and loves hiking with her husband and friends, going on float trips, as well as horse riding and occasional rock climbing.
