Given her skill for making science accessible and applicable to our daily lives, Sarah is a sought after expert in the media. Her work and writing is featured in international publications such as Fast Company, Inc, Business Insider, and Forbes. She is also a columnist at Psychology Today.
Sarah’s integrative approach is informed by her rigorous training in Prevention Science at Harvard University combined with her immersion in mind-body psychotherapy at the California Institute of Integral Studies. Knowing the science is important, but even more so is understanding the nuances of how to apply it human to human.
While working with individuals towards personal growth and transformation is the work of Sarah’s heart, she is also deeply committed to access and scalability. In service of scalability, Sarah works with top start-ups focused on mental health, leadership, and wellbeing. Most recently, Sarah served as Lead Coach and Program Design Lead at BetterUp, a venture-back platform for mobile coaching (total funding = $144.8 million). As one of the first employees, Sarah wore many hats including developing coaching programs for fortune 500 companies, advising and developing new product features, leading the development of content and training leveraged by 2000+ coaches across 60+ countries, and representing the company through speaking and press.
Sarah is grateful to have found a career that feels like a calling. Sarah is also a volunteer program director at World Altering Medicine, a life-long bookworm, and a mindfulness facilitator and long-term practitioner. She lives with her husband and three daughters (one of the four-legged variety) in the San Francisco Bay Area.
