Sarah Hay

India, Himalaya, and Africa Instructor

BA Environmental Studies: Anthropology;  Warren Wilson College
Ed.M International Education Policy; Harvard University

Sarah initially got hooked on this beautiful world of experiential education and wilderness travel at summer camp in the misty blue ridge mountains of Western North Carolina – and she’s still very much committed to the power of group bonding, bonfires, sing-a-longs, random skits and s’mores.

Sarah has worked in the field of education – both domestically and internationally- at leading organizations including the Education Development Center, Outward Bound, Cambridge Public Schools, National Outdoor Leadership School, Project Adventure and Harvard University. She’s spent weeks floating through the Ecuadorian Amazon and living among remote indigenous communities, months climbing peaks in Alaska and Patagonia, and not nearly enough days sitting on beaches in Thailand. Sarah has managed US and Norwegian government funded development and/or research projects in West Bank and Gaza, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Mali, Ghana, Macedonia, Georgia, Indonesia, Cambodia, Sri Lanka, and Bosnia. Sarah is currently based in Seattle where she works on a handful education projects, teaches yoga, works on her pottery and goes on “urban hikes” (ie: walks around aimlessly) in the rain.
