Hi Everyone! My name is Sara Zschernitz and I live in the Twin Cities of Minnesota with my wonderful husband, Zachary. Here is a little more about me...
B.S. in Ministry and Social Science from Northwestern College in St. Paul, MN.
M.S. in Human Services and Gerontology from Capella University.
My past work and internships have instilled a great desire in me to support intergenerational programming within communities and churches. However, it turns out that there are not paid opportunities to do this within churches and very few openings elswhere to occupationally live out this desire.
With that said, I am currently looking to find the right job for me, and participating in opportunities recreationally that support my endeavor.
My ideal job would be a women's ministry director position for a non-denominational church in the Twin Cities.
According to the Myers-Briggs and Keirsey personality assessments, I am and ENFJ, Idealist, Teacher/Mentor. In short, I love to help the people and organizations that I am a part of to acheive their best. I am also able to read the intentions and character of others with extreme accuracy.
I am dedicated to lifelong learning and engage in regular assessments of myself and any organization I may be involved with to encourage our best.
In my free time, I enjoy DIY projects, spending quality time with my husband, going on adventures, frequenting establishments that support personal expression of the arts within the community, reading, writing, and studying the Bible.
Bill Nye is a man with a mission: to foster a scientifically literate society by helping people everywhere understand and appreciate the science that makes our world work. Nye has spent the past 20 years educating students young and old about science and understands the importance of keeping minds active after the last school bell rings. “Learning can happen anywhere and at anytime – the important thing is that it should never stop,” Nye said. “We’ve put together fun, free and easy activities that will make this the summer of learning versus the summer filled with the dreaded words ‘I’m bored.’ ” AN EARLY KNACK FOR HOW THINGS WORK Making science entertaining and accessible is something Bill has done most of his life. Growing up in Washington, D.C., he spent afternoons and summers de-mystifying math for his classmates. While working for Boeing in Seattle, Bill combined his love of science with his flair for comedy. After winning a Steve Martin look-alike contest, he became an engineer by day and a stand-up comic by night. Eventually, Bill made the transition to comedy writer and performer on Seattle’s home-grown ensemble comedy show “Almost Live.” This is where “Bill Nye the Science Guy®” was born. The 18-time Emmy Award-winning show appeared before Saturday Night Live and later on Comedy Central. During this time, he also wrote five kids’ books about science, including his latest title, “Bill Nye’s Great Big Book of Tiny Germs.” BROADENING HIS MISSION Bill’s passion for math and science translated into a love of space. His role as CEO of The Planetary Society, the world’s large space interest organization, has taken him across the globe. And one thing Bill is very proud of is the MarsDials, two sundials on residing on Mars he created with Cornell scientists. America’s favorite stand-up scientist hasn’t changed much from that kid growing up in Washington, DC. He still rides his bike to work. He’ll pull out his Periodic Table of the Elements from his wallet. And his drive for helping others understand science is as strong as ever.
