My Coaching Story

A people person who connects with you on the most basic human levels.

Empath meets expert.

Sarah has spent the last decade immersed in the fields of communication and education, working in post-secondary education for over 12 years. A former Marjorie S. Jost Scholar, she has been a facilitator, conference presenter, published researcher, and coach to various community groups, organizations, professionals, and students looking to improve their communication skills. An article Sarah co-authored, looking critically at media’s relationship with systemic social change, was recently published in the Journal of Applied Journalism and Media Studies.

With a desire to help people overcome their biggest fears, find confidence in their own knowledge and strengths, sharpen their leadership skills, and expand their communication practices to become more open, inclusive and inviting, and motivated by her 3C’s (communication, connection, community), she is striving to build supportive communities through effective communication. Highlighting the importance of inclusive language, gendered & mediated communication, Sarah enjoys educating others on the influence and impact our language has on the climates we create and contribute to. Throughout her own education and professional career, she only wished she could have learned communication theory earlier. Recognizing this, she decided to meet a need and fulfill a gap in the market in the local community and beyond, providing opportunities for others to develop their skills and highlight the importance of effective communication across industries and sectors.
