As a classically trained musician, Savastano began her career in Opera Management, but quickly made the switch to the popular music realm. She has worked in the administrative management, intellectual property, and royalty departments for several notable companies, including Broadcast Music Inc. (BMI), Spirit Music Group, RykoMusic, Cherry Lane Music, Musical Heritage Society, and Turn Up the Music.
