A big thanks to Tyler for developing the manual and procedures to allow students who are dedicating their careers to recreation and disability to gain incredible first-hand experience right here at Bridge II Sports.
Sarah comes to us with a true passion and understanding of what ‘opportunity for everyBODY’ really means. Her brother has CMT, a degenerative nerve disease, and throughout his life he has been involved in a lot of different sports and activities. Sarah has been there as coaches and teachers took the time to adapt drills and plays, include him, and focus on his strengths. She sees that same attention to the athletes here at Bridge II Sports.
“BIIS doesn’t pity people with disabilities but encourages them to engage in recreation. They are changing people’s perceptions of what disability is, presenting people with disabilities as strong.”
Sarah is thrilled to learn all that she can about adapted equipment and sports during her internship and ultimately put that knowledge into practice with a career serving Veterans with disabilities in a VA hospital.
Hey Sarah – is that Macklemore’s sweater? When she is not hunting for unique looks and fashion bargains at the thrift shop, she loves tapping her creative side through drawing, painting, or sewing AND her active side running and rock climbing.
Looking forward to seeing those complimentary sides at work as Sarah learns, grows, and supports the mission of BIIS this spring.
