Ambassador - Sarah Yeates

Sarah Yeates Facilitator

Sarah has over 12 years of experience working in the health sector, specialising in child development, Autism and mental health as an Occupational Therapist. She went on to complete a Masters of Business Administration (MBA) in 2011 followed by a scholarship placement within the School for Social Entrepreneurs Incubator program, bringing congruency to her health and business skills. Sarah followed her passion for working with youth in her role as business manager for the organisation, Mittagundi, a youth led and focused organisation which aims to connect young people with the mountains while fostering resilience and a sense of self.

Her knowledge and use of mindfulness tools and techniques has strengthened through her own practice, formal training including the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction program and by educating children and families with whom she has worked.

Sarah has now facilitated over 75 workshops for Smiling Mind’s corporate program with a passion for this role born from her genuine interest in people. She loves watching people develop the skills to understand mindfulness and helps them achieve this in her down to earth and practical way.
