After devoting many years to the conservation biology nonprofit world, she’s turned her attention to doing diversity, equity and inclusion work while also chasing a doctorate in Occupational Therapy. These days Sally can be found in Northern Arizona, trying to make her way back to Northwest Montana. She’s passionate about DEI work, empowering all women, portrait photography, and advocating for the people and places that need it most.
