Sarah R. Nicholson
Chief Executive Officer
Sarah’s passion for the environment, art, and engineering helped her build a freelance graphic design company while studying mechanical engineering and developing her knowledge in geographical systems. With the mission to find a solution to energy and housing issues in remote and northern communities, Sarah’s award-winning research during her Master’s of Applied Science Degree has become the basis for commercialization and expansion of multi-year/multi-organization projects. She used computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and her knowledge of environmental systems to create a new method to keep permafrost from thawing, while providing renewable energy through geo-exchange.
Sarah has presented her technical work internationally, and has been a guest lecturer, podcast guest, researcher, and mentor on improving the conditions for women in engineering and technology. Along with her experience as Marketing Director and CTO, Sarah’s mission is to use her skills to innovate the business of sustainable technology – by making high-tech solutions genuinely accessible and empowering for all, while prioritizing the holistic health of the global economies and environments that we’re a part of.
