Sara Hanley

Meet Sara Hanley!  Sara is a self-proclaimed outdoor enthusiast.  After numerous canoeing, kayaking, backpacking, skiing, sailing, and climbing trips with her father growing up, she couldn’t help but be adventurous and develop a deep respect for God’s creation.  She participated in every sport at one time or another and has continued to run throughout her life.  She's always challenged herself, including running marathons, competing in triathlons; completing an Ironman-length triathlon and a 40-mile trail race are two of her mid-life achievements.

She received a BS in Biology from Iowa State & an MS in Oceanography from the University of Washington, then taught biology for DMACC as well as fitness classes for the YMCA - before she had a house full of kids!  She was fortunate to marry her college sweetheart, Tom, & blessed to stay home to raise their five kids, Grace (21), Mason (18), Mary (16), Sally (14) & Susan (14).  She has a deep passion for wellness, enjoys experimenting in the kitchen to make the healthiest meals, and loves family-time!  Her family mission is to provide opportunities for others that they would not normally receive, especially when it comes in the form of outdoor experiences.  Her daily routine currently includes forest treks with their dogs, Adamantine Yoga, and challenging herself to be the best massage therapist she can be, striving to cause significant beneficial change in clients.
