Sarah is a budding naturalist, with a deep appreciation for children’s education. After becoming a board-certified music therapist in 2010, she went on to work with a variety of populations across San Diego and Boston, while also working as a music, art, and dramatic arts teacher for a private Montessori School. While working as a theatrical arts educator, she started multiple youth programs throughout the Massachusetts Northshore. She holds a Masters in Entrepreneurship from Oklahoma State University, and is a Certified Forest Teacher endorsed by Southern Adventist University, under the care of Dr. Jean Lomino in Chattanooga, TN.
While becoming a mother of two, Sarah travelled cross-country multiple times and has visited 25 National Parks and counting. She’s passionate about the natural world, and how it can be incorporated into children’s education, enrichment, and daily-joy.
Folksy was dreamed up as a space where children can find a sense of slowness, connection, and seasonality framed in childhood magic, both in our school and scouts program.When she’s not exploring with the children at Folksy, Sarah enjoys handcrafts, watercolor nature journaling, pottery, traveling, and camping with her husband and two daughters.
Stacey carries a BFA in Fine Arts from SUNY Fredonia and can often be found behind a camera running her successful photography and visual arts business. She's a self proclaimed “people person” who, through her experience as a homeschooling mom, has found her calling in both connecting with children and connecting with nature and all it has to offer us. She has found a home at Folksy where both of these passions collide. In March 2021 Stacey earned her Forest School Certification through the Forest Teacher's Institute in collaboration with Southern Adventist University in Chattanooga, TN, and is committed to furthering her Forest School education, as she believes there is no better childhood than one spent playing and learning outdoors as much as possible.
