Dr. Sarah Thorne

Dr. Sarah Thorne grew up on a ranch SW of Millarville, Alberta where she learned how to ride horses at a young age, leading to competing in equestrian and cattle penning events. She also started playing soccer and competing in gymnastics at a very young age, which lead to the Alberta Summer Games.

She has an interest in nature and sports, having lived in the Yukon, where she spent summers visiting the North West Territories and Alaska; camping, fly fishing and coaching soccer & gymnastics.

Dr. Thorne graduated with her undergraduate degree in Business & Recreation Management Studies from Acadia University in Nova Scotia, where she played varsity soccer and volleyball and dabbling in surfing on those East Coast swells.

She went on to compete for Canada as a member of the Canadian National Bobsled team, competing across Europe and North America and attended the Vancouver Olympic Team Trials.
