Chris has been at Imago since 1999, when I came to the Ohio River valley to lead Imago’s youth education programs. Since then, Imago has been a huge part of my life, and I am so grateful to be in a community filled with intention, creativity, kindness and fun. People often ask me what my favorite part of my job is. I’d say that it’s that I get to be with amazing people every single day. From our staff, our volunteers, our board, our community members, and the people that we serve, it is all an incredible treat. Oh, and I have a nature preserve right outside my office door, that’s nice too.
Outdoor Education is one of her great passions and she is always excited to collaborate with Imago’s partner schools to bring the wonder of the outdoors right to classrooms. Sara graduated from the University of Dayton way back in 2009 and has a myriad of professional experiences including both outdoor and indoor education. When not playing in the great outdoors you can find her backstage, calling cues in any number of community theater productions.
Jake is going into his junior year at the University of Cincinnati majoring in Environmental Studies with a focus in water. Ever since he was a kid he has always loved the outdoors, hiking, camping, and any other sort of interaction with nature. When he is not in the classroom you can usually find him on a trail, taking pictures with his camera, or just relaxing with friends.
