Sarah moved to the Hudson Valley in the spring of 2017 to be closer to family after spending nearly 20 years on the shores and slopes of Washington State. A desire to build community and share her love of the outdoors with young people led her to spend nearly a decade volunteering as a mentor and snowboard instructor for Seattle youth. Sarah has a Master’s Degree in Natural Resource Management and has worked in the fields of environmental conservation, food justice, corporate accountability, and civic/political engagement. Sarah currently works for Wild Earth, a local organization that cultivates character, confidence, passion and perseverance in young people through transformative experiences in nature. She also serves as Board Co-President for the High Falls Food Co-op. Sarah lives on her cousins’ farm and orchard in High Falls and spends most of her free time going on adventures with her new puppy, Daisy.
