Savannah Logsdon is our new Marketing Director. Savannah spent her high school years in San Angelo, finding her creative voice through theater before moving to Singapore to pursue a BA in Animation from LASALLE College of the Arts. She then worked as a freelance artist in Los Angeles for a number of companies, creating animated commercials, advertisements, and iPhone game apps. She returned to San Angelo in early 2018 to teach art and illustration to more that 1,000 local school students. It was then she realized she wanted to remain in the community which helped grow her as an artist. Savannah is now ecstatic to be using her creative talents for BSA.
Camille Martinez is our new Development Coordinator. Born and raised in San Angelo, she decided to move back to San Angelo after studying in Dallas TX. Once home she was offered a position as a monthly columnist with a local publication. While holding this position, Camille began to pursue a career in the fitness industry and soon longed for more. Following in her parents’ footsteps, she fell in love with the world of non-profits. This journalist-turned fitness professional was able to merge her varied interests with her heart for service through multiple non-profit organizations in the Concho Valley. Working with some of the most successful and talented people in the industry, she gained valuable knowledge on the intricacies of non-profit fundraising. Camille is committed to serving our wonderful community and is excited to carry on our mission of Empowerment Through Movement.
Maritza Pineda has joined our Children’s Division. Born and raised in South Texas, she trained in ballet and gymnastics before earning her BA in Dance from Rutgers University.

Maritza’s years of experience, loving enthusiasm for this age group, and belief that creative dance and movement builds confidence and teaches children to use their bodies respectfully and safely with grace and joy, makes her an ideal addition to our BSA family.
Amy Schiller, already known at BSA as an exceptional seamstress and consistent supporter of BSA, has agreed to be our new Costume Mistress.
