Hi there!

I am Rene; also known as, Savvy & Style and in 2016 I fired my boss and hired myself! I left a career in higher education to follow my heart which now allows me to help other strong, passionate, and joy filled women entrepreneurs build their savvy and stylish empires.

I was born and raised in Buffalo, New York and now reside in Maryland just north of Washington, DC with my husband and 2 fur babies, Luna the Chihuahua and Harley the Pomeranian who is diabetic and blind.

I’m currently obsessed with all things birds, feathers, arrows, and chevron. I love everything blush and gold but when it comes to nature and my cupcakes, I always choose white – white flowers, white frosting, and white pumpkins. I would definitely consider myself a foodie; choosing vacation locations on which Top Chef has a restaurant there and I never start a day without two cups of Starbucks French Roast – the stronger the better!

Why Savvy & Style

So, why Savvy & Style?

Savvy – In my prior life, I was an event and operations professional with over 13 years of experience in the Higher Education setting. I’m that person who loves everything about being behind the scenes and making others look good – yes, I’m the world’s biggest introvert. I also obsess about all the little details that go into planning the perfect event – I LOVE A GOOD THEME!

Style – Because life as an administrator didn’t always fulfill my need for creativity and passion for fashion, I have been an independent business owner and Stylist with the boutique accessories company, Stella & Dot since 2010. In addition to helping women with their everyday and event style, I lead and coach a team of other business owners from all over the country.

I love that I have been able to combine my two passions of Savvy & Style and am looking forward to working with you in either or both capacities.
