HI THERE! I’m Savannah aka the Savvy behind What Savvy Said.
I’m a blogger, podcaster and life coach on a mission to empower women to live their happiest and healthiest lives.
Obsessions: my dogs, a good movie/ book, a glass of wine or coffee
If you were to ask me as a little girl who I wanted to be when I grew up, I wouldn’t have even known. I’ve never been one for absolutes. For years I spent time trying on what I like to call “everyone else’s shoes”. You know like Goldilocks with her porridge? I never could find the one that was just right.
Over the years, I’ve had more jobs than I can count: after school child care worker, hotel reservations, tutor, post office worker, swim teacher, loan documentation specialist, sale assistant, film + tv production assistant, blogger. . . the list goes on. I’ve been given the gift of learning a lot of skills and working with THOUSANDS of people.
In 2016, I left film to come home and help my mother care for my 88 year old step father. For the next 3 years, I would spend day in and day out watching a man who survived the depression, war, losing a wife to cancer and so much more, slowly lose his mind. His mental deterioration would, unfortunately, create a toxic mental health environment for everyone around him. In 2017, I lost my father to his long battle with mental illness when he took his own life. In 2018, my family and I survived Hurricane Michael, a category 5 hurricane that devastated my hometown and the life we’d know.
I have been both fortunate and unfortunate enough to get a very close look at what it means to be mentally healthy both through my own personal experiences and through those I love. Thankfully, it’s all brought me to this space with you.
As both a creator and someone who knows the struggles of being mentally healthy, I realized that there was a gap that none of us ever planned for.
What Savvy Said is my way of helping creative women navigate the space between creating their best life, being happy, learning to trust their gut and navigating a career with social media. We are fortunate enough to live in a time filled with possibilities. But those possibilities can also come with more scrutiny, an audience that always want to know more and the guilt of feeling like you can never take a day off. With the constant ability to plug in, your mental health can take a backseat. And if I can make it easier for you to navigate that path, to truly create a life you love without sacrificing your mental health, then I’ll consider my job done.
I’m so glad you’re here and you’ve decided to join the Savvy family. Because this beautiful life we live is one we also get to create and I can’t wait to create alongside of you.
It’s a good day to have a good day!
