Sarah (she/her) joined MCHT’s fundraising team, after five years working with the Natural Resources Council of Maine. She holds a B.A. in English and women’s studies from McGill University and authored two early mountain bike guidebooks: Mountain Bike! Maine and Mountain Bike! Atlantic Canada. Sarah lives in Bath and is grateful for many nearby land trust preserves.

Sarah has been with MCHT since 2010.

On land conservation: “My well-being arises from my connections to people and the natural world. Walking at Thorne Head, swimming to Crow Island, paddling with my partner—all wake me up to the preciousness of life. Land trusts in Maine create opportunities for these connections to thrive and for qualities like wonder, awe, humility and compassion to inform the way I move through the world.”

On the job: Sarah creates opportunities for charitable foundations and other donors to become partners in our statewide land conservation and community engagement efforts. She finds the connections between MCHT’s work and the philanthropic interests of potential donors and shares the stories and information that will invite, inspire and honor their participation and support.
