Sarah Henningsen

At Ascent, I get to work on a variety of projects with my amazing coworkers. I gravitate toward big projects with complex environmental issues in sensitive locations. While these types of projects often take years to move through the environmental process, they also present interesting challenges as well as opportunities to really get to know my clients and teammates. I love helping my team stay organized and moving forward toward our goal. My current projects include ski resort developments, industrial developments, solar projects, housing developments, water transfer projects, and utility infrastructure projects.

Outside of work, I enjoy hiking, reading, practicing yoga, cheering on my kids’ sports teams, and having adventures with my family.
