This is Savannah's only walking tour that covers Savannah's lengthy medical history from plagues that almost destroyed the fledgling colony, to a pandemic a century later that seemingly passed over the city's enslaved population, to the foundation of a soft drink giant. Given by a working Registered Nurse the tour attempts to be an inclusive look at the contributions the city's multi-ethnic population made to medicine and the city's survival.

I'm still in our first year, and were recently featured on Georgia Public Broadcasting.

I can't update my availability on trip advisor to match my schedule as closely as I would like. If you're looking for a specific date please reach out to me at

Whenever I visit a new place, I love to learn about its history. I’ve lived in Savannah a few years now, but I’m still finding out new facts. There are lots of tours one can take but only a handful are actually informative and historically accurate.
