For over 30 years, René Borghese has committed her professional life to caring for others. As a Registered Nurse with a background in emergency and intensive care, she always placed a focus on advocating for her patients and ensuring they received the highest quality care.

Now, as a healthcare administrator, René utilizes her influence to empower and motivate her team. She prides herself on her integrity and perseverance, and understands difficult things never come easy.

While attending nursing school, René worked part-time to pay for tuition and earned her first degree from The University of South Carolina. She later graduated from Campbell University with a Bachelor of Applied Science and Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Winston-Salem State University. She went on to earn a Master of Science in Nursing Leadership from East Carolina University.

Locally, René volunteers with the Cedar Grove as well as Orange County GOP and serves on the Orange County Adult Care Home Community Advisory Committee. Nationally, she is a member of the Board of Directors for the Association of Air Medical Services, the Board of Trustees for the MedEvac Foundation International and a Regent and Instructor for the Medical Transport Leadership Institute.

As a cancer survivor, René learned first-hand that with faith and perseverance she could navigate whatever obstacles she encountered.

She and her husband Andy enjoy country living in rural Orange County with their dogs Midas and Milo. Midas is a 14 year old Golden Retriever and Milo is a 7 year old Pyrenees mix rescue. When they aren’t caring for their dogs, they enjoy traveling, attending Durham Bulls Baseball games and spending time with friends and family.

René is a conservative who believes the Constitution is the backbone of this great Nation and she is committed to defending the freedoms it guarantees every American citizen. She is eager to use the skills she gained as a nurse and a leader to fight for conservative values and advocate for North Carolinians!
