A native of the Northern Neck, Savannah returned to King George County after a stint in the mountain state. She holds a Master of Business Administration with a specialization in Organizational Leadership and a Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Communication from Bluefield University. Prior to returning to the region, Savannah worked for the City of Bluefield, West Virginia’s Economic Development Authority. While there she received congressional recognition for completing her ‘Starting a Business’ Certificate from Santa Clara University.

Savannah joins us from the Stafford County Department of Development Services, where she provided oversight for administrative and operational functions related to code compliance, environmental programs, developer securities, permitting, and the Community Development Service Center. Her primary focus and passion lie in supporting small businesses and entrepreneurship, guiding aspiring entrepreneurs through the “idea to open sign pipeline.”

When not at work, Savannah actively engages in community advocacy, but she finds her true peace at the family river house, enjoying Virginia’s scenic waterways – which is why natural resource conservation is so important to her. During the off season, she enjoys road trips to explore the unique character of different small towns with her husband.
