Sarah is passionate about the interplay between mental and physical health, and how it relates to sustainability, social inequality and policy. She is completing her degree this spring in Psychology and Health & Society from UBC, and currently researches the mental and physical impacts of stress on different populations. With a public speaking and workshop facilitation background, she brings a knack for community engagement to the projects she tackles. This was seen in her being the co-founder and chair of the UBC Safe Surgery Summit, which has been reproduced at other universities across North America. Through her role with the Red Cross Student Movement, she has lectured on Sustainable Development and empowered high school students around Vancouver to make changes in their communities. Sarah has always been drawn to complex issues, and believes in the importance of global citizenship while not overlooking local issues.
