With 10 years of experience as an environmental educator, program manager, and deputy director in the Bay Area, Raynelle Rino brings a wealth of professional and life experience to the work of healing people WITH nature. Her love for nature and youth development brought her to teach in unique settings like alternative high schools, environmental justice neighborhoods and parks, and juvenile justice facilities. As a woman of color identity has played a key role in where she is today; understanding the ever-changing world and supporting the next generation of leaders as caretakers of our planet. Raynelle started Rino Consulting Solutions in 2016 with a mission “to support and inspire the leaders of today to live in the confidence of their identities as they move through a world in the midst of social, racial, and environmental transformation.” Raynelle provides life coaching services for our diverse communities by incorporating a decolonized spiritual approach to engaging and healing in nature. She is an effective bridge builder between mainstream environmentalism and people of color by emphasizing a racial justice lens to environmental work.
