Open to the world, Sarah speaks several languages and has lived in many countries. A graduate of the Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne (EHL), she had a first experience at the World Tourism Organization in Madrid before completing a Master's degree in sustainable tourism in Great Britain (Leeds University). Very interested in sustainability issues, she received in 2013 the second Young Talent Award at the World Tourism Forum for her paper on responsible supply chain management for the hotel industry. She also dedicated her Master's thesis to this topic. 

Her varied professional experiences have given her an interdisciplinary approach that she puts to good use within the Institute of Tourism for the coordination of different mandates. Sarah loves to pass on her knowledge and has several years of coaching experience to her credit. She is currently taking the first step of the adult trainer certification.

Her current research interests lie in the fields of sustainable tourism, management tools and local products.
