About

Savannah is an aspiring urban designer that currently resides in New York City with her Cocker Spaniel, Hallie. She is a student at the Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation at Columbia University. There, she is pursuing two masters degrees in urban planning and real estate development.

Originally, from San Francisco, California, Savannah grew up nearby in a small Bay Area suburb. She attended college in the Midwest at the University of Notre Dame where she was a Division 1 athlete and served as coxswain for the Women’s Rowing Team. At Notre Dame, she studied business and obtained a BBA in marketing.

Born the daughter of a well-known Northern California and Northern Nevada developer, Savannah has a special interest in the planning and development issues of the San Francisco Bay Area. As a result, she has aimed much of her graduate level research on these topics and considers herself a specialist on the San Francisco home ownership crisis and the role that Silicon Valley tech companies have played in affordability issues for middle class residents.
