Senior Field Instructor
Sarah grew up in western New York, just outside of Rochester. Her love for the outdoors started when she was 13 and her family took a trip to Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks. Ever since then Sarah has loved hiking, kayaking, mountain biking, and skiing. Sarah believes that the outdoors provide opportunities for space and healing through the beauty and the challenges we face there.
In the field, Sarah focuses on making connections with the students and providing a safe and comfortable space for them to work through whatever they have going on. She understands the importance of balance and believes that after a foundation of trust and respect, challenging a student is a necessary part of their process. Sarah tries to lead through example when it comes to her values, which include hard work, honesty, and respect.
In her free time Sarah enjoys mountain biking, hiking, reading, learning to play her ukulele, and cooking. Sarah graduated from SUNY Geneseo with a bachelor's degree in psychology and hopes to one day become a clinical social worker.
