SARA THACKER

Lindon Campus Trainer & Advanced IPT Facilitator

Sara has spent the last twenty years as a cosmetologist. After years of working in front of a mirror trying to convince herself and her clients that physical beauty would bring happiness, Sara came to realize there was more to feeling good with Self than outward appearances.

Sara also has an Emotional Health Practice in Heber City, Utah. Now, as Sara works with her clients, she stands on the other side of the mirror and helps them discover new possibilities from within.
