My name is Savannah Usabel.
My maiden name is Scottish-Irish, my family is Basque on both sides, and after a few cocktails, Gramma used to ride over to our house, bareback, on her paint mare (18 hands, I believe) and make sure that my brother and I also knew that we are Cherokee and Dark Dutch.
I was raised to have the patience of Job, the grace of Mother Theresa, and the character of a Larry McMurtry novel.
My mom is a shrimp and my dad was a giant.
Guess which genetic attribute I was blessed with?
My husband is over a foot taller than me and has me by over 100 lbs. Suffice to say, he is my safety. I loved living alone and now, I don’t like to go to sleep without him laying next to me.
Having witnessed the heartache my mom suffered after my dad drowned on a rafting trip, I wholeheartedly believe in the beauty and in the sanctity of marriage but I also believe that marriage should be fun and passionate.
I am in the running for Mrs. Idaho and proudly carry the Title, Mrs. Rocky Mountain. My platform centers around giving women the tools to be happy and healthy because women are the driving force of any relationship; just as the adage says, “Happy wife, happy life”.
I moved out on my own shortly after high school and I owned my own home by the age of 21; I have bought, refinanced, and sold. I am a licensed mortgage loan originator and have assisted many folks with their own buying and refinancing.
I am a Coca-Cola cowgirl.
I grew up with chickens, goats, horses, cattle, geese, ducks, etc. and at some point, several of these animals were inside of the house! All that to say, I never learned to rope and I’ve never liked barrel racing so I can’t show you any rodeo tricks. I was taught, however, that if you’re “Going to town,” you dress flashy so glitz me up! .
I’ve worked as a dishwasher; I’ve worked in marketing; I’ve worked on portable toilets and in garbage trucks; I’ve been a dishwasher, busser, a waitress, and I’ve done it all in heels.
