The Savvy Assistant

About me

Hi there!

Thanks so much for coming to The Savvy Assistant! I guess your wondering what my experience has been in order to know all of this thrifty & useful  information I am passing on? Well, here it goes:

My background includes having assisted for three top Grammy winning recording  artists and a Fortune 500 Executive in LA.  As an Entrepreneur at heart, I am also a small business SPA owner {}  and author of  “How to Become A Celebrity Assistant: Your Inside Source“. It’s an honor to have been a former Remington National Style Ambassador and privilege to work with ongoing Leading Brands. From both my personal experiences with the Entertainment industry as well as my Business ventures, I look forward  to sharing with you my  insight & knowledge  from a Christian perspective.

You can be an assistant or professional of any kind and find something on this site that will help you do your job better. So dive in! Check out the topics and be the best you can be! If there are any topics you would like to be covered that are not on the site, drop me a line at and I would love to hear any feedback!

FUN tidbits :

*Favorite books: Anything business related, skincare related or a Biography. Love “Entreleadership” by Dave Ramsey. Head to my “Book Nook” page for my current & FAV reads! {Better yet, drop me a line and tell me which book has inspired you!}

*Favorite mentors: Rick Warren, Dave Ramsey, my parents & Big sis

*Favorite Business models: Chick-Fil-A, Dave Ramsey

*Ideal Best day: Sleeping in, a big BREAKFAST {Hazelnut Creamer a must}, time with my nephew & niece, a ‘lil shopping & spa time {I love specialty food, coffee  & paper stores} lunch or tea with a true friend {Chai}, sight seeing to a new place, dinner with my parents & sister and going to sleep reading a business book and either my bible (usually a bible app)or inspirational book.

*Fav snack: Popcorn & milk { I know, odd but I love it!}

*Cringe worthy: I’ll heat up leftover coffee & snack on stale popcorn. I love cheap boxed Mac N’ Cheese

*Makes me laugh: Jimmy Fallon  & Jim Gaffigan

*Favorite “celebrity” person I’ve met: Justin Timberlake. Truly talented  and respectful. Honored to have met countless Celebrity & Entertainers who are talented in their craft.

*My Favorite WOW moments: Standing beside Aretha Franklin backstage at the Grammy’s; backstage at The Ellen Show & The David Letterman Show.

*Food temptation:  My palate is both sophisticated  & super simple.  I might crave an incredible plate of Italian gnochhi followed by a Raspberry sorbet {or Creme brulee } or an equally yummy Bojangle’s biscuit &  Krispy Kreme donut.

*Favorite Int’l city: Toss up between London & Paris. However my homebase of Greenville SC is one of the most beautiful quaint southern cities you will find. Check out my hometown at:

*Fav songs on my Spotify Playlist: “Need You Now {How many Times}” by Plumb {great song to blast in the car at top of your lungs}

Matt Mahers “Lord I need you” {what a voice!}

John Waller “I will serve you while I’m waiting”

*Pet peeves: My crooked smile {makes photo shoots soo much longer}, not telling me when I have something on my face or in my teeth, last minute cancels, my extreme dyslexia, ugly shoes.

*Fav Apps: “Tradesy” , “Uber”, “Haute Look”

*Early am or Late Pm? Late Pm

*Fav style: Changes every day. Some days I’m preppy, bohemian, comfortable, sporty and eclectic. I feel best in Maxi dresses in the Spring/Summer with strappy sandals and great looking boots & leggings in the Fall/Winter.

*I’m a dork b/c:  I love crossword puzzles, cards via mail, tons of stickers {I’ll never grow out of those}, cool colorful pens, love my weeks planned out in advance, total sucker for anything on QVC, best find is my Kitchen Essentials coffee maker

*My all-time must haves: Honesty, Trust, Loyalty. The 3 Big ones. Can’t build up unless the foundation you lay is solid. The great part? I’ll offer that in return.

*Makes me smile in 2 seconds & gives the best hugs ever? My ‘lil nephew & niece

*A few of my favorite verses:

~Proverbs 15:22: Without counsel plans fail, but with many advisers they succeed.

~Proverbs 31:35: She is clothed in strength & dignity and she laughs without fear of the future

~Proverbs 18:24: A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother

~Proverbs 28:18: Whoever walks in integrity will be delivered, but he who is crooked in his ways will suddenly fall.

My personal quote: “He’s got this. He knows what he’s doing, ask for wisdom & then let your Heavenly Father lead the way”.
