With a diverse background as a website designer, graphic designer, copywriter, author, life coach, yoga teacher, business owner, and Children's Librarian,
I'm a bit of a creative hummingbird.
Armed with an insatiable love of learning, I excel at learning new things and sharing them in an approachable way. I specialize in instructional design, e-learning, and digital content creation for adult learners.
"Sarah is a wonderful, genuine and compassionate person. All of these wonderful traits about Sarah carry into her speaking engagements. Her talk on non-violent communication not only opened my mind to the ways in which I work and engage with the families I work with as well as my own family but also challenged me to examine my own personal self-talk and how I can redirect thinking about myself.
Sarah has a tactful way of engaging people in conversation while allowing space for self-reflection and processing. She is able to engage a larger group of people while still connecting with them personally, it feels like you are in a one on one coaching session with her. She really cares about the people she works with and the work she does to encourage positive change in the way we act and engage with those around us."
