In 2005, Treneice co-founded a support group, P.L.U.M.P. Productions (Pretty Ladies Uniquely Made Perfect) for young adult plus size women suffering from low self-esteem. The group offered workshops, online communications, activities, mentorships, one on one support, etc. for young women in need.

Productions. From there, she has reached out to young plus size women all over America as well as in places such as the islands and even Austrailia. She knew this was only the beginning of where God was planning to take her.

After the feature in Cosmo Girl Magazine, Treneice was recruited, as the State Leader for the Maryland/DC area, to a well known Plus Size Modeling Organization, Maverick which is now known as X'Change Modeling. Under the leadership of Myisha Hill, X'Change Modeling has grown currently in about six states across the U.S.
X'Change Modeling is a social empowerment and fashion organization with a global ambition to change the world's perception of the plus size woman in modeling, media, and by making a difference in the community.
