Brief info

Sarah Featherly is a Disability Advocate at SAIL, The Disability Network of the Upper Peninsula. She was raised in the Northern part of Lower Michigan and has always loved being outside. Sarah moved to Marquette for its beauty and the outdoor recreational opportunities, she enjoyed it so much that she decided to stay and finish school.

Sarah has always been intrigued by behavior and the patterns of evolution, how we learn and grow, and the impact that has on an individual to take them in a variety of directions. This intrigue led Sarah into her master’s program in Applied Behavior Analysis at Northern Michigan University shortly after the completion of her bachelor’s degree in psychology.

Helping individuals overcome obstacles and get better connected to their community has always been a passion of Sarah.
In her free time, Sarah enjoys the outdoors with her fur baby who loves the outdoors as much as she does, her fur baby even likes to dig in the garden with her!


A Few Kind Words

"Disability Network has allowed me to share ways to deal with social issues, given me new ideas about technology and other accommodations, helped me to share and release stress, and increased my self esteem."

Geri Taeckens

"As an intern at SAIL, I have been able to direct many people toward programs or organizations that may help people live more independently. Every time a goal is accomplished, the feeling of success is totally noticeable. Even with one client at a time, the community is noticing that this organization cares about our clients and the communities in which they serve."

Jennifer Webber

"I want to improve acceptance, community integration and employment opportunities for people in my community who have disabilities. They are individuals with strengths and challenges just like everyone else."
