Savannah joined GMRI in December 2017 as a LabVenture Educator where she facilitates experiences for 5th and 6th grade students in the Cohen Center for Interactive Learning.
Savannah graduated from Colby College in Waterville, ME, where she majored in environmental science with a concentration in marine science, and a minor in education. During her undergraduate education, not only did Savannah get certified to teach Life Science in Maine (grades 7-12) but she volunteered with the GMRI Vital Signs program in Skowhegan, ME. In addition, an amazing semester of off campus learning at Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences in East Boothbay solidified her love for the Gulf of Maine. Prior to returning to Maine after graduation, Savannah worked for a nonprofit watershed association in Connecticut juggling time between environmental education programming, field work and grant writing.
Outside of engaging the youth of Maine with scientific knowledge, Savannah can be found walking in the woods, knitting a pair of socks, or burying herself in a book. That is, unless it's winter where you will most certainly find her outside enjoying her love of ice skating.
