As a professor and adventure guide, Sarah's passion is connecting people with the natural world through education, play and a deep sense of reverence and responsibility for our planet. As an outdoor educator, Sarah is deeply curious about the ways people connect with their inner selves through exploration of the outer wilderness and the transferable skills that can be fostered through experiential education. She is also dedicated to the complex journey of decolonization and reconciliation by taking responsibility as a Settler to this land for the ongoing violence of colonization and centring Indigenous peoples and knowledge.
