Rene Spencer

Client Services Associate
r.spencer@lpl.com

An entrepreneurial soul is hard to find, but—like her father, Mike Spencer—Rene shares in a small-business, roll-up-your-sleeves, mindset. Before working at SW Advisers, Rene opened, managed, and eventually sold her own clothing business to dedicate her time more fully to her education. Her can-do attitude allows her to consistently meet client expectations as she helps them open accounts, schedule appointments; all while handling logistical details to optimize your SW Advisers experience. Through her attendance at Newspring Church, Rene is a passionate member of NEXT—an adult-focused, fellowship-group that takes a deep-dive approach into the teachings of the Bible. Also, she volunteers her servant-leader’s heart through Kidz Unlimited, where she helps children with disabilities come to know Christ; through patience, understanding, and communication—all strengths that propel her forward here at SW Advisers. Outside of work, Rene loves her family scuba-diving adventures, sharing meaningful moments and conversations with friends, free-weight strength-training, cycling in the evenings at the Y.M.C.A., and championing others through encouragement and warmth. That roll-up-your-sleeves, entrepreneurial mindset of hers pushed Rene to not only finish her high-school diploma through Andover eCademy, but to do so simultaneously as a freshman at Butler Community College, majoring in Business with an emphasis in Entrepreneurship. We expect wonderful things for Rene’s future and are blessed that she has decided to join our team.
