The T1D Team Behind the T1WT Magic

Meet the T1WTeam

We may be a little biased, but we’ve traveled the world and our staff are undoubtedly some of the best in it! Proving anything is possible with diabetes, they regularly challenge limitations and inspire the next generation of T1D changemakers through their leadership. Our staff are passionate about facilitating thought-provoking discussions, injecting fun into day-to-day diabetes management, summiting mountains, telling Circle stories, and helping T1D teens discover their passions. They create the magic on and off program that makes us all want to live boldly and limitlessly.

Passionate about diabetes camp + community, travel, outdoors adventure, social justice, 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 travel which propelled her to become a middle and high school teacher, summer and gap year travel Program Leader and Director, Entrepreneurial Leadership Consultant, startup accelerator manager, venture capitalist, and impact investor. 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. 

Though work often feels too fun to be considered “work,” outside of the outdoors office, you can find her watercolor painting, rock climbing, backcountry skiing, and basking in the Rocky Mountain West sunshine.

LOCAL LEADER

𖤥 Basecamp: Chiang Mai, Thailand

After graduating from Phitsanulok University with a B.A. in Tourism, Bo began an 8 years and counting career as a rock climbing guide and outdoor educator. He has had the opportunity to work with international students around the world – helping them explore Thailand and giving them the ability to get in touch with his home country’s culture, nature, community, and lifestyle. His experience includes guiding adventures in China and throughout SE Asia–immersing himself in cultures and languages worldwide.

Fun fact: Bo was Savannah’s climbing guide the first time she ever traveled to Thailand! They later reunited as coincidental co-leaders and led programs together as the “Dream Team” for the Smithsonian Institute for 5 years!
