Sarah grew up in Toronto, Ontario, but currently lives in Halifax, Nova Scotia. She has just completed the second year of her undergraduate degree, with a major in environmental sciences and a minor in chemistry. Upon graduation, she plans on pursuing a career in research as well as expedition travel.
Her inspiration to work in this industry was the recent opportunity to travel to Antarctica and South Georgia on a sixteen-day small-ship expedition, exploring the beautiful landscapes and wildlife and experiencing the true serenity of the region. Since this experience, she has worked to expand her knowledge and discover more about the world, specifically both polar regions.
Sarah is interested in anything to do with the outdoors. In the past, she has led portaging trips and she also enjoys whale watching, kayaking, snorkelling, and many more outdoor activities. Some of her other hobbies include going on long walks, reading books, playing sports (her favourites are volleyball and swimming), and travelling.
Sarah is interested in finding sustainable ways of living by reducing her carbon footprint and spreading awareness of how important it is to live on a clean, healthy planet.
