“I’m passionate about the role that mentors play in the course of a life. The guidance and care shown to me by mentors has influenced my life and being immeasurably. When I’m not defending the potential of youth, I can most often be found in the great outdoors of the Pacific Northwest, foraging for mushrooms, kayaking, fishing or rockhounding. I love cooking, reading, board games and lapidary.”
Hi my name is Sarah Gannon and I am a Match Coordinator with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Island County (BBBSIC). I’ve been with BBBSIC since February 2020 and have really enjoyed how positive this organization is. I am originally from Washington, but I moved back to the state in July of 2019 after living in Vermont and Maine for nine years.
While in New England I assisted children and families in gaining access to community and state resources through case management. I’ve worked with homeless youth, children with developmental and/or cognitive delays, children with emotional and behavioral disorders, and individuals with substance use disorders. I completed my undergraduate studies at Eastern Washington University (Go Eags!), and I got my Masters degree from the University of Vermont.
In my free time I love to play with my dog and spend time with my husband. I’m a huge hockey fan (Go Bruins!) and proudly cheer on the Seattle Sounders. I love to cook and bake, listen to music, read comic books and watch Marvel movies, as well as spend time in the outdoors in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. I am super passionate about what I do and am very grateful to be able to be a defender of children’s potential at BBBSIC!
