Trails Momentum’s Dr. Sarah Parlier Featured on ‘Success is Subjective’ Podcast
Dr. Sarah Parlier, Director of Student Development at Trails Momentum, was recently featured on Success is Subjective, Joanna Lilley’s podcast. On the episode Dr. Parlier discusses her background, working at Trails Momentum, and her thoughts on young adults and college.
Dr. Parlier talks through the impact of working at Trails Momentum. With a background in academics, Dr. Parlier had a vision for what her career as a teacher was going to look like. When she found wilderness therapy and Trails Momentum, she found a place where she could incorporate all of her passions into one united vision.
“The best teaching that I think I’ve ever done is at Trails Momentum,” said Dr. Parlier while discussing her career journey. Trails Momentum provides experiential learning opportunities for students led by Dr. Parlier.
Dr. Parlier explains how teaching styles impact how young adults learn and absorb information. She states that “students have to like what they are learning, have to find it meaningful, and learn it in a context that they can transfer that knowledge.” Trails Momentum accomplishes this through flexible learning environments, guided field work, and a comprehensive approach that provides additional support for students across their academic and therapeutic needs.
Trails Momentum’s mission is to help young adults successfully launch into the next step of their lives with academic and therapeutic support. With the help of Dr. Parlier, students are ready to take the steps needed to reach their academic goals.
