About Alana

Meet Alana, the Marketing Director of Renaissance Womanhood.
Alana is our high-energy Marketing Director.

There are two things that often describe our Marketing Director, and that’s that she’s high energy and she’s got a fabric stash that would make your grandmother blush. Coming from a Public Relations and Communications background, she’s well versed in sharing ideas and communicating “how-to’s” in a friendly and accessible way. And, thanks to her experience these past four years working in the influencer marketing and consumer PR space, she’s the wheels driving Renaissance Womanhood forward.  

Being able to combine her passion for all things sewing and textiles, in addition to using her marketing and communications skills, she’s equal parts on stage and behind the scenes. You’ll find her hanging around the Renaissance Womanhood social media channels, or either in front of, or behind the camera for any of the video content you see going live.  

You can also find her at AlanaSimpson.com where she runs workshops helping business owners bring excitement to any meeting they walk into (which allows them to walk out with the sale).

About Mel

Meet Mel, our incredible Creative Director.
Mel, our own Renaissance Woman, is our Creative Director

Renaissance Womanhood is the brainchild of our Creative Director, and she is just that: a renaissance woman. Melanie has spent the past six years freelancing in theatre and live events and thrives on the ever-changing and ever-challenging nature of her work. New projects, new people, and new adventures feed her deep curiosity and love of learning, which she is eager to apply to her everyday life and share with everyone she meets.

Renaissance Womanhood began as a way for her to embrace her multidimensional interests and navigate the world of “adulting”. Identifying herself as a renaissance woman has helped Melanie embrace her traditionally feminine interests and find the empowerment in them rather than be stifled by them. As Creative Director, Melanie’s will be the primary voice of Renaissance Womanhood and she’ll be right there with you on camera as we learn and develop new skills together.

In the meantime, she’ll be eating vegetables, knitting socks, hiking bad-ass trails, and celebrating life’s simple, everyday accomplishments.
