Passionate about diabetes camp + community, outdoors adventure, cross-cultural connection, and experiential education, Savannah’s career took many shapes and forms prior to Type 1 Way Ticket. While studying Sociology at Colorado College, she developed her love for global experiential education which propelled her to become a high school teacher and travel Program Leader and Director. During her five years abroad, Savannah taught in Thailand, Cambodia, Chile, Argentina, Jordan, and South Africa and directed teen programs throughout Southeast Asia and Latin America. These years sparked her interest in entrepreneurship and investment as mechanisms for systemic change, and led Savannah to become an Entrepreneurial Leadership Consultant, startup accelerator manager, venture capitalist, and impact investor. Alongside T1WT, Savannah works as the Investment Director for the Sorenson Impact Foundation, a family office allocating capital to accomplish the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
Savannah completed her Masters degree in Education Entrepreneurship from University of Pennsylvania and is a certified Diabetes Coach, Wilderness First Responder, and Advanced Open Water SCUBA Diver. She speaks Spanish fluently, is learning Levantine Arabic, and loves learning as much local dialect as possible while traveling. Outside of the outdoors office, you can find her watercolor painting, rock climbing, skiing, and basking in the Rocky Mountain West sunshine.
