Savannah is an Explorer Chick Guide with a passion for meditation on foot. In 2015 she became a long-distance hiker, walking from Key West to Maine on the Florida Trail and Appalachian Trail. This experience changed her life in many ways, instilling deep gratitude within her for the simple things in life. Since then she has accumulated over 11,000 miles of long-distance backpacking on trails all over the country. She has walked from Mexico to Canada on the Pacific Crest Trail, from Phoenix to Albuquerque on the Grand Enchantment Trail, from Denver to Durango on the Colorado Trail, and from Glacier National Park to Cape Alava on the Pacific Northwest Trail. She has completed remote routes in the Arizona Wilderness as a solo long-distance backpacker, such as the Sky Islands Traverse, which encompasses 10 of southeast Arizona’s most prominent sky islands. Savannah is also a certified Wilderness First Responder.
Savannah is from a small town in North Carolina, and she misses the green summers there. Before her rebirth as a hiking guru, she lived in New York City, working as a bartender and traveling internationally as a young twenty-something to Spain, France, Italy, and Slovenia. She lived on Maui for a year, and learned to surf, badly! She loves the sound of a needle on wax, the feeling of a pencil on paper, and the smell of hot coffee in the morning. She currently resides in Phoenix, Arizona, and spends most of her time in the Grand Canyon.Instagram Profile
