Meet our Sales Staff
Savannah grew up in the Portland area and came to us through a friend and fellow Portland Discovery employee. Her first job at age 16, she started as shy around new people but quickly got over that by talking to hundreds of people a day and telling them all about Portland and what not to miss while in town. She enjoys being outside in the beautiful Maine summers and hearing from visitors and families that a particular tour she recommended made their vacation more memorable. When off the clock, she’s working on crafts or off to Peaks Island with family and friends.
Miles grew up just north of Portland in Falmouth, and began working for Portland Discovery in high school. He now splits time between being a student a British Columbia University during the school year and as a member of our ticket staff in the summer. He loves the size and charm of Portland, meeting people from all over the world, and he’ll tell you that after 6 years working here, he still learns something new from our guides every day. Miles grew up around boats and when not on Long Wharf, can often be found on his sailboat exploring the islands of Casco Bay.
