Savannah’s passion and career specialization is in the application of organizational psychology and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in the workplace. She has worked in a variety of research-based roles, such as the BC Youth Forensic Psychiatric Services and SFU’s Culture and Development Lab. She also co-produced and taught a youth mental health outreach and education campaign for the North Shore Family Services. Her original research undergraduate thesis on the evolutionary roots of empathy in modern society was presented at the Capilano University’s Research Symposium and SFU’s Researching the Globe symposium.
Savannah’s Organizational Psychology MSc dissertation consisted of a meta analysis on the impact of the modern work week, which built upon her BSc Communications and BA Psychology. Her current postgraduate research focuses on the intersectional experiences of neurodivergent individuals, women, and the LGBTQ2S+ community in relation to modern working environments and shifting societal norms surrounding work philosophy.
In addition to her academic and applied experience in psychology and communications, Savannah is also well-versed in DEI initiatives, administration, non-profit management, recruitment, and project management.
