Executive Director of Re:Purpose Savannah
Mae Bowley moved to Savannah in 2015. Out of a desire to learn more about the charming and mysterious city, she started taking classes in Historic Preservation and Restoration at Savannah Technical College. When she encountered Emergent Structures (parent organization of Re:Purpose Savannah) in 2018, she fell in love. She was an avid volunteer for six months, and was then hired on as Assistant Executive Director. In 2019 Mae took over as Executive Director
Mae holds a Master of Art in Art Education from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, along with a Bachelor of Art in Graphic Design and a Bachelor of Art in Classical Archaeology from Florida State University. Her professional background includes creative director for a manufacturing firm, market manager for an urban farm, and a principal in her own marketing consultancy for creative startups, Bowley Creative.
She harbors a fierce passion for longleaf pine and will often be caught gushing over it.
