DriveElectricTN is excited to share with our stakeholders the new coordinator of the program, Savannah Robertson.
“To say that I am excited is an understatement,” Robertson said. “Jonathan [Overly] and his TNCleanFuels team has done a phenomenal job of laying the groundwork for DET. They’ve made my work a lot easier.”
Robertson is a cat mom, runner, green thumb enthusiast, wannabe beekeeper, lover of the environment and an East Tennessee native. Her greatest passions lie within supporting people to thrive in our ever changing, modern-day world. Naturally, these passions landed her a bachelor’s degree in education at the University of Tennessee – Chattanooga, a 200 Hour yoga instructor certification and a social marketing certification.
After teaching mathematics/algebra and coaching cross country for a few years, Robertson managed a juice bar in Market Square and hosted yoga workshops. Before joining ETCleanFuels, Robertson managed Smart Trips, a federally funded program that encourages sustainable transportation.
At work, you will find Robertson managing DET’s working groups, planning events and forgetting to unmute herself on Zoom.
“As Coordinator, my primary plan is to continue planning and organizing all of DET’s activities. While maintaining these activities, I will also explore any opportunities to develop new ones,” Robertson said. “DET will continue to develop its working groups to ensure statewide implementation of EV policies and practices run smoothly. Some of my time will also be spent overseeing the program’s budget, tracking expenditures and transactions as well as assisting with content creation for DET’s multimedia platforms.”
Outside of work, you can find her backpacking on trails she found on AllTrails, hanging out with friends and fact checking her cat.
“I look forward to building and maintaining positive relationships with you and all those involved in Drive Electric Tennessee,” Robertson said.
