Sarah Thomson, MEd
Director & Career Advisor for Seattle (Cascade College) and Wyoming students
I am a partner in your career planning process, listening to you and supporting you with advice, resources, connections, and encouragement as you seek to clarify and attain your career goals. I am an advocate for you, celebrating your successes and supporting you through challenges.
My first job out of college was teaching first grade. I spent many years working and learning in the disability community in Washington. I have been a Program Manager in workforce development and served in various career education roles across higher education institutions. I am proud to be part of the UW School of Medicine community. My master’s degree is in Student Development Administration from Seattle University, and my undergraduate degree is in Psychology from Seattle Pacific University.
I was born and raised in New Zealand and am proud to be a Kiwi. I enjoy paddleboarding, swimming, and cooking for a full table. Alder Lake is currently my favorite place to paddle and swim, as it lies in the shadow of Mt. Rainier.
My career and life advice: Ask for help and take time to listen to your life.
