Sarah “Grizz” Grizzle is a specialist in environmental communication and media production. Her research focuses on the protection of the environment using mass communication as a platform for sustainable and positive change for both humanity and the planet.

Before joining the Ray, Sarah was a wilderness guide, fly fishing instructor, and television producer. After decades of working in the woods, she decided that the stories she was producing did not equal the stories she was seeing. These first-hand experiences with the realities of climate change are what convinced her to join the public sector.

Sarah is currently finishing her Ph.D. at the University of Georgia and working on a documentary series in conjunction with her dissertation. Sarah holds an M.Ed. in Outdoor Recreation from Georgia College & State University and a B.A. in Political Science from Berry College.
