Her article, columns, and interviews are picked up by Alternet, the Christian Science Monitor, Huffington Post, the Dallas Morning News, Truthout, and elsewhere.
Sarah lives on the Suquamish Tribe’s traditional lands; she serves on the board of the Tribe’s Suquamish Foundation and paddles with the Suquamish canoe family on the annual tribal canoe journey.
She has lived in India, China, and Central America. She is the mother of two adult children, and was a founding board member of Winslow Cohousing in Washington state.
