LifeBound Master Trainer and Director of Certification
Sarah is a lifelong learner whose educational + professional accomplishments represent her curiosity to better understand the human condition. Motivation, resiliency, grief, addiction, mental health challenges and healing of intergenerational patterns of trauma are the primary focus of her private coaching + counseling practice. Utilizing her experience as a social worker in conjunction with her background as a personal coach, she partners with her clients to raise their conscious awareness around their personal goals, and helps them uncover and overcome blocks so they can live their their fullest, happiest life.
As Director of Certification for LifeBound, Sarah oversees, develops and maintains programmatic content for LifeBound’s Student Success Coach and Master Trainer Certification Programs in accordance with the guidelines set by the International Coaching Federation (ICF). Working in this capacity allows the best of both her favored worlds: working at the macro level developing programs, curriculum, tracking data + outcomes while concurrently working 1:1 as the Mentor Coach for all program participants.
As a LifeBound Certified Master Trainer, Sarah feels honored to have trained hundreds of academic professionals on how to incorporate the coaching modality into their work with students. Student Success Coaching Training fuels her passion to help support as many people as possible in aligning with their purpose to live their most full-filled life. For Sarah, the idea that the majority of training participants work directly with underserved populations that wouldn’t customarily have access to support of this magnitude is particularly impactful.
Sarah’s educational background includes a Master’s Degree in Social Work from the University of Hawaii at Manoa, Student Marshall Status, a B.S. in Business Administration from Towson University, is a Certified Professional Coach through iPEC, an Energy Leadership Index Master Practitioner, a Certified Substance Abuse Counselor and a LifeBound Certified Master Trainer.
