Sally enjoys using a sense of fun while learning, as this supports active learning being embedded within the personal and business aspects of all individuals. Sally’s respect for all aspects of diversity has been acknowledged by individuals and organisations with whom she has worked and engaged.
Sally’s main value is of “ayni”, meaning right relationship with self, seeing the earth and others as a driving force in contributing to leaving a place or environment in a better condition than when she found it.
