Savara Hastings is the Executive Director of the American Medical Marijuana Physicians Association. Savara received her Bachelor of Science degree in Hospitality Management from the University of Central Florida with Certifications in Marketing.
Savara Hastings, born in Michigan, spent much of her childhood traveling the world with her parents. She spent most of her time in Durban, South Africa, and Condon, Montana, before moving to the east coast of Florida. Savara always immersed herself in every community she became a part of, and participated in countless volunteer efforts and fundraising events to get involved. After graduation, Savara decided to stay in the Orlando, Florida area, knowing there would be exciting opportunities to come.
Believing in many causes where she could help those less fortunate and collect funds for voluntary health organizations, leading an organization that believes in relieving pain and other symptoms through alternative medicine like medical cannabis seemed to go hand-in-hand. Following Florida politics and keeping up-to-date with developing industries, Savara joined the American Medical Marijuana Physicians Association since it’s founding, and took over the role of Business Development and Membership Services. Working previously in the Tourism and Marketing industry gave her a unique management perspective and ability to understand people. She eagerly accepted the role of Executive Director and was selected because of her ability to manage effectively and her passion for developing industry.
A word from the Executive Director:
“I am so proud to represent the American Medical Marijuana Physicians Association, its Leadership team and staff, and its ever-growing list of physician members. Being involved with this association from it’s inception over the past two years and watching how far we’ve come has truly been an honor. AMMPA has successfully developed into what it’s founding members worked towards from the start; a membership driven association, focusing on providing physicians with the resources they need to safely and effectively utilize medical marijuana recommendations as an alternative treatment modality for their patients.
We want to continue to serve our physician members involved in cannabinoid medicine and advocate on their behalf. With many factors in the law still being determined, having a unified voice is imperative."
