About Me

Meet the face
behind the posts

I am Renata.


I grew up on a small Caribbean island. I first moved to New York City in 2002 and have recently relocated to upstate NY. My professional experience includes being a nanny, a real estate agent, and a human resources representative. I graduated with a BA in Psychology with a concentration in industrial/organizational psychology. Organizing, wellness and anything that involves cooking/food are subjects I enjoy talking about authentically.


The idea for Breathe by Bre emerged after a short time spent in cognitive behavioral therapy in 2019. I needed an outlet to talk about the things I was facing in my life and the solutions that helped me. Knowing you’re not the only one experiencing something makes a world of a difference and creates a community that fosters kinship and growth.


The blog is about finding ways to enhance well-being in all aspects of our lives. When I’m not writing, I love cooking, organizing, exploring with my two children and catching up on some of my favorite shows—Monk, Psych, Parks and Recreation, The Office, Law and Order—and spending time with myself. I dream of living in a small town, but for now, I am enjoying suburban life.


I hope you enjoy it here.
