Sarah Tydings

What do you do when you spend 15 years climbing the corporate ladder to become one of the youngest female executives at your company? If you’re Sarah, you decide to take that experience and embark on a totally new adventure.

You buy a 40-acre farm buzzing with bees and brimming with wild berries. You take a chance on an intriguing company listed in Outside magazine’s "Best Places to Work" feature. You wow with your roll-with-the-punches attitude and firecracker spirit. And then you spread your wealth of knowledge to companies seeking meaningful strategic growth and team development.

As a facilitator for Frontier Academy, Sarah funnels her passion for solving people puzzles—not to mention an economics degree and MBA—into streamlining processes, pinpointing unnecessary baggage, and suggesting much-needed solutions along the way. 

Above all else, Sarah likes to keep things simple, taking each endeavor one step at a time, learning from each and correcting course as needed. Instead of hiking the entire Appalachian Trail in one fell swoop, she’s breaking it down in chunks of two- to four-day trips. And that farm of hers? She’s got big plans to fill it with cows, pigs, chickens, and sheep one day. But first, she’ll plant some peach trees.
