Savannah is a currently a second-year law student at Santa Clara University School of Law. Before law school, she received her B.A in Sociology and Philosophy at the University of California, Santa Cruz. She spent her senior year of college writing a thesis on the Syrian refugee crisis and refugee policy’s failure to address the human trauma of forced migration.
As a first-year law student, Savannah spent a summer clerking for the Contra Costa County Office of the Public Defender. During her clerkship she helped clients clean up their criminal and arrest records so that they could move beyond their record and create a better future for themselves. She currently volunteers as a coach for the Amador Valley Ethics Bowl team and loves participating as an artist in the chalk art festivals that are scattered across the Bay Area.
When she’s not studying, she enjoys creating art and spending time with her pets.
