Savanna, a Rising 3L, will be the Submissions Editor starting in the Fall of 2018. She is most looking forward to reading the new articles submitted for publication and getting to know the incoming TLJ board and staff. Savanna joined TLJ because she wanted to be in the Southwest Indian Law Clinic and thought that being on the journal would help her learn about Native American issues. She hopes to work with the Native American and Hispanic Communities as a practicing attorney, specifically in public interest law such as policy work and legislative issues.
Savanna was born and raised in Albuquerque and has started a family of her own. She has a supportive husband, Paul, and a beautiful, energetic baby boy, Sevastian, who is 3 years old. She is currently a member of the Native American Law Student Association and the Immigration Law Student Association on campus and has done an externship with the New Mexico Department of Workforce Solutions. Savanna came to the UNM School of Law because she liked the environment of the school and was interested in the well-known clinical program. As far as her experience with TLJ, she is impressed by the progress we have made and how well we have worked as a group.
