Savannah is a fourth-year student pharmacist at Mercer University College of Pharmacy in Atlanta, GA. She is originally from Murfreesboro, TN and graduated with a biology degree from Lipscomb University in 2018.
Savannah currently serves as the Executive Director of the GPhA Student Leadership Board, a board member of ACVP, is an active member of APhA-ASP, NCPA, Rho Chi and Phi Lambda Sigma. She also works part-time as a pharmacy intern at both Walgreens Pharmacy and Innovation Compounding Pharmacy and loves her role in both organizations.
Savannah is an avid advocate and have traveled to DC for meetings with legislators about important topics in pharmacy three times since the start of pharmacy school, as well as to the Georgia Capitol numerous times as well.

This Board contributes to planning the Georgia Pharmacy Summer Convention, Day at the Dome, and various events throughout the year geared towards both students and practicing pharmacists.
Savannah stated “I am thrilled to be continuing to serve as an intern for NASPA. I have had the chance to contribute to projects that will advance the profession of pharmacy and learn more about association management, and hope to continue making a difference. I look forward to continuing to interact with all the members and staff and am thankful for the opportunity!”
