Savanna was born in the beautiful town of Salmon, Idaho. She spent her childhood sharing time between Salmon and the ever growing Treasure Valley, this diversity created a love for the capital city and the beautiful mountains. She spent the summers floating the river, fishing, and camping. In the winters her and her family would often go snowmobiling, sledding, or to her dismay, skiing. She has a passion for leaving the world better than she found it, whether that be collecting trash and cleaning up on outings, or inspiring others to believe in themselves and to know that they are cared for. Savanna's busy family includes her three children Elijah, Carmen, Loralai, and her husband Shane. She has a background in healthcare as well as in education. She fully believes in growth mindset and providing an impactful project based mastery education. Our youth are the future, and she is inspired to work with them.
