2018-19 VISION Team Leaders
Meet Mary Timm and Sarah Scislow, Leaders for the Quail Springs, CA Trip
Greetings!! My name is Mary; I am a sophomore this year studying environmental sustainability!! I was introduced to VISION through my lovely meditation teacher here at St. Thomas, Duncan Anderson. Through this program, I built awareness of what it means to live an intentional life and learned the importance of making changes that extend beyond myself and into the world. A couple things I love: dancing, yoga, camping, the ocean, the sun, and deep conversations!! I am beyond excited to meet you and grow alongside you through VISION!
Heyoo! My name is Sarah Scislow and I am a senior studying human resource management. I have been on two VISION trips (Chicago and Thailand) and I'm super excited to be a VISION leader this year! I have a love for traveling, dogs, and music. I love nature so I'm outside whenever I get the chance! This year is going to be great!
