Sarah herkess

Design summit officer

Sarah graduated with a Bachelor of Environmental Engineering and worked in engineering consulting for some time. However, the past few years Sarah has developed a love of education and pursued roles in the delivery and facilitation of educational programs which foster connection and community. She's honoured to be a member of the Design Summit Team at EWB.

As an outdoor leader in Gippsland, Sarah spent 12 months 'hanging out with teenagers' in the Victorian mountains and looking after her chooks. She also spent a year in and out of Malaysia, living for some time in Penang, working on two EWB design summits in Sarawak and spending a month in Sabah with university students undertaking professional placement.

Sarah fills her spare time riding bikes, getting her hands dirty in the garden, napping, sploshing in the ocean and trying to do handstands.
