It's always interesting when asked to tell about yourself. Who should know more about you, than YOU. In her 30 something years, Savannah has found that knowing yourself is a ongoing lesson. So far, one thing she's learned is that she have a genuine passion for people and their human experience. She believes that passion has lead her to this career field.
Savannah has been with Light Dental Studios since September of 2018. She studied dental assisting at Clover Park Technical College where she worked part-time as a "peer ambassador" for the Student Leadership and Service Center. Prior to that she worked varying jobs ranging from hardware stores to child care. When she's not in the office assisting, she spends her free time doing different things. Most favorably she enjoys live entertainment. She loves a good concert with one of her favorite artists or even a local band. Either way, she just loves to hear the music and be among other people who enjoy the same. If she's not "fan-girling" out at the nearest concert, she likes to acrylic paint or take a road trip. She love a good meal, especially if it involves some sort of potato dish. Most recently she has chosen to follow her "people passion" outside of work and began volunteering time with a youth group through her church. Her heart is with the youth. Their tenacity and curiosity inspires her.
She is committed to living by a saying she once heard, "Instead of trying to make a better world for our children, let us make better children for the world."
