"Ranee is a natural… she is sexy, effervescent and clever - qualities sure to make audiences come alive. The most successful speakers are also 'show people' who create excitement not only with words, but with spirit." - Arthur G. Insana, Audio Producer/Director, Time Warner Audio/Time Life, Inc."
Ranee Alison Spina has found her calling in helping young people navigate their relationship choices. For over 11 years, she has helped the love-struck tackle their most heart-breaking, intimate challenges. In 2003, with the outline for her first book I AM before "I DO," she took a leap of faith onto the college lecture circuit and a new style of speaker was born.
It all began in 2001 with Java Relationship Night at a coffee house in Los Angeles. One day, Ranee received a call from the executive producer at Dick Clark's The Other Half airing on NBC daytime. Shortly after a brief guest spot, Ranee became a regular on the show alongside hosts Mario Lopez and Danny Bonaduce. Fast forward to today, she has succeeded in changing the mindset of thousands of women who have read her book or attended one of her live lectures. She is on a lifelong mission to give readers and audiences around the world the distinct advantage when making relationship choices.
Most public speakers proclaim to be "inspirational" or "motivational" to their audiences. Ranee believes that if you need to be motivated or inspired from someone else, you will continually need reassurance from that person. Instead, she strives to be a catalyst for her audience with a fresh point of view to common relationship issues we all face each day. Her uncompromising honesty about sex and relationships arouses age-old issues with humor and candor.
Raised in the Philadelphia suburbs, Ranee attended New York University's College of Business and Public Administration. She relocated to Los Angeles to be in the entertainment business and now lives in Orange County. When she is not crisscrossing the country to speak on college campuses, she is working on her next book and finishing a Masters Degree in Human Sexuality Education. Ranee is a member of AASECT (American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists) and the Founder/President of Merge17.com, an online community for sexuality and health professionals.
