During this time, Renee was asked to be in a fashion show, which was the beginning of her modeling career at the age of 40. Davis has worked as a runway, and commercial print model in various product ads and publications including Essence magazine. Davis has also been in TV commercials such as Pantene Gold Series, the American Cancer Society, Sparkle Paper Towels and others, and was posted in the light bulb aisle at Lowe's for many years until recently.
In spite of this new found love of modeling Davis faced another obstacle when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. As the daughter of a three-time breast cancer survivor, Renee knew the importance of early diagnosis. After a lumpectomy and radiation treatment, Renee went on to partner with the Avon Foundation Comprehensive Breast Center as a Community Outreach Coordinator to help educate the underserved and uninsured minority community who are at higher risk for breast cancer deaths.
