Savannah is a San Francisco native and daughter of Chinese immigrants. Growing up mostly in San Francisco’s Chinatown, her passion for social and immigrant justice came from being a part of a low-income family herself. She joined SJC in October 2017 with the goal to increase positive impact and awareness for the organization through media relations, development, and effective communications.
Prior to SJC, Savannah worked at the Capitol Corridor Joint Powers Authority (CCJPA) as their Marketing & Communications Coordinator and Climate Corps Fellow, where she assisted with their Group Travel program and provided many schools (some of which were low-income) an easier process to plan out field trips by taking their trains. She also volunteers for environmental nonprofits such as 350 Bay Area and manages their bi-weekly newsletter. She graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management & Marketing at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in 2016.
Her goals for the next few years include attending law school, learning Spanish, and alleviating the disparities of resources for low-income immigrant communities. Savannah currently speaks three different Chinese dialects: Cantonese (廣東話), Mandarin (普通話), and Taishanese (台山話).
