Savannah Edwards

Medical Coordinator

About Savannah

Savannah was born and raised in Griffin, Georgia where she and her family escaped to the mountains whenever they could. She fell in love with the Blue Ridge Mountains and that led her to Young Harris College where she received a Bachelor of Science degree in Outdoor Education. After receiving her degree, she spent 5 years traveling out west working as a recreational guide doing activities like backpacking, rafting, ice climbing, white-water canoeing, sailing and sea kayaking. Before entering the medical coordinator role, Savannah worked in the office as our student care coordinator for two years and would help out in our transport department as well.

As Medical Coordinator, Savannah is the primary point of contact for families and students about medical and health concerns. She serves as the liaison for the medical director, Dr. Dowis, and coordinates doctor's appointments and first aid. Savannah’s favorite part of the job is visiting the groups each week for health checks in the field.

In her free time, Savannah loves to fish, hike with her two rescue dogs - Cherokee and Oreo, read, and fly single engine planes.
