Sarah Forrester-Wilson

Principal

Sarah grew up in the wilds of Devon in the English countryside where she cultivated a huge passion for the natural environment. Fascinated by language, she graduated with a B.A. in English Literature and Creative Writing from Falmouth University, and then moved more specifically into her line of work with a M.Sc. in Strategic Leadership towards Sustainability from the Blekinge Institute of Technology, Sweden.

Prior to Roller, Sarah was part of the core “Bristol Pound” team, the first UK city-wide complementary currency- aimed at connecting people, place and product. During her time there, she was responsible for designing and delivering educational workshops to diverse communities both nationally and internationally. She has a broad knowledge in alternative, value-led economic systems and organizational structures.

At the heart of it all, Sarah’s focus has always been in education. With a passion for experiential and cross-cultural learning, Sarah has taught across various continents, running participatory processes aimed at bringing people together around shared values of creating a more sustainable society.  She leads yearly camping expeditions for children with Forest School Camps, and co-founded Transition Lab with three of her former classmates. 

Sarah loves to host and appreciates the beauty in detail. She is a natural teacher, facilitator and crafter of process, not to mention a board sports enthusiast, singer, traveler and lover of all things green and wild. For some odd reason she likes jumping into very cold water, which she balances with drinking lots of tea.
