Hi! 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. When I am not busy working I enjoy spending time nurturing my growing succulent and house plant collection.

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 – 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 style, I have been an independent business owner and Brand Ambassador with the boutique accessories and clean beauty company, Stella & Dot since 2010. In addition to helping women with their everyday 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 seeing where this new journey takes me.
