Meet Our New Pass the Torch Interns!


Anna is going into her senior year of college at IUPUI. She is working towards a major in philanthropic studies and a minor in psychology. She started volunteering at a young age with her dad at soup kitchens, Rebuilding Together, the Alzheimer’s Walk, retirement homes, etc. She continues to be passionate about helping others whenever and wherever she can. Anna hopes to work in the nonprofit world and aspires to own her own one day.

A woman in her life that has inspired her and pushed her to be the greatest version of herself would be her mother. Her mother is a psychologist who helps others daily and pushes her kids to do the same.

Not only is Anna’s mother her role model, but she is also her best friend. Anna’s mother is the most hardworking, considerate, caring, funny, and genuine human. She aspires to be the kind of person, friend, worker, wife, and mother. Her mother dedicates her time to helping others and, like Pass The Torch, meeting her clients where they are at. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Anna’s mother saw some of her clients (who had lost their jobs or were going through tough times) free of charge. Anna’s mother continues to inspire her every single day, and she is blessed to have her as her mom. 

Anna is excited to work with Pass The Torch for Women as their Project Management Intern. Like many other women, she has experienced discrimination in the workplace due to gender. Anna is ready to work with Pass the Torch to help break that glass ceiling and inspire other women along the way. 


Savannah is newly graduated from Indiana University with a B.A. in both Media and International Studies. At IU, she was involved in several student organizations that focused on the arts, such as the IU Arts & Humanities Council and Tiny Dorm Concerts. In addition to arts organizations, she was a member and later mentor for the IU Civic Leaders Center, which focused on keeping students civically engaged within their community. Savannah is still determining what she wants to do in the future but hopes to either spend a few years teaching English abroad or working in communications for an organization that fosters change and supports the promotion of arts. 

Savannah is part of the Summer 2023 Fehribach Center Internship Cohort. The Gregory S. Fehribach Center was created as a partnership between Ball State University and Eskenazi Health to provide internship experiences to students with physical disabilities. Students within this program gain professional expertise to develop their professional skills further.

Savannah’s mom is a woman who inspires her and is her most outstanding mentor. Her mother is the Administrative Director of Quality Improvement for Franciscan Health Central Indiana Division and works tirelessly as a mother of three daughters and for her community. Savannah’s mother is not only the hardest worker she knows but also the most selfless and funniest person she knows, traits Savannah aspires to have. Savannah hopes to be half as great as her mother, both personally and professionally. 

Savannah is ecstatic to intern for Pass the Torch as the Marketing and Communications Intern. She wholeheartedly believes in the Foundation’s mission and is inspired by the effort to empower women, emphasizing investing in their future. Savannah is excited to contribute to the vision of Pass the Torch and continue to uplift women in all stages of their lives.
