Pronouns: she/her

BIO:

Savannah is a curiosity driven compassionate leader, with the vision and grit to make her dreams a reality. Savannah grew up in Renton, Washington alongside animals ranging from hermit crabs to peacocks! She learned early on that each animal has a unique soul & relationship with the world. This drove her to dive deeper into her own passions and community role. While earning a degree in marine biology, Savannah quickly came to understand the importance of representation, and the value of community more intimately. Whether it was professional, academic, political, or community-based, she realized that BIPOC have too often been left out of conversations and decision-making processes that often impact us disproportionately greater. Savannah’s passions for fostering curiosity, illuminating opportunity, and engaging the heart motivated her to co-found Sea Potential. Her work intersects BIPOC perspectives and water cultures with tools for healing and self exploration.
