I’m Sarah, and I’m an Author, Speaker and Leadership Development Coach.
I work with female survivors of abuse who are ready to leave their wilderness behind, find healing from their emotional wounds, and #liveWILD.
I began working in women’s leadership development as a teen speaker on TV shows about healthy relationships. Since then, I’ve spent years advocating for teen girls, pastor’s wives, abuse victims — plus initiatives against human trafficking and pornography, AND addressing abuse in faith communities.
I’m a co-founder of the Bucket Brigade Against Abuse and WILD -- Women In Leadership Development. WILD also stands for Wisdom, Identity, Legacy, and Daring!
Every woman I know has been hurt at some point. Unless we choose to overcome, our inner wounds create a toxic mental soundtrack that tells us what to think, how to act, and who to be.
We want better relationships, more meaning, greater value — but we get stuck in the status quo. We try stuff, men, achievement, motherhood — whatever speaks to our individual nature. Being broken may be part of being human, but we don’t have to accept it as permanent reality.
I want to show YOU how to think in new ways that influence how you make decisions, interact with people, and overcome whatever lies hidden in your history.
Whatever you’ve been through — abandonment, abuse, bullying, self-harm — it IS POSSIBLE to transform the way you think and choose a joyful, purposeful, WILD life.
As a little girl, I had this beautiful poster over my bed with an enormous white tiger leaping into a pool of water. To me, that image symbolized confidence and freedom of spirit — the essence of what it means to #liveWILD.
As an abuse survivor, I know how it feels when your reality shatters. My story is proof that God can bring beauty and freedom from heartbreak and pain.
Women like you and me CAN discover and unleash God’s WILD, confident spirit through:
- Gospel-centered strategies to prevent abuse,
- healing from whatever’s already happened, and
- developing Spirit-filled leadership.
