Sadie Henderson

Partnerships Analyst

"If you are bewildered and clinging tenaciously to some course you love, be patient. Work hard. Hold your dream tightly to you, and do everything you can to realize it within reason. Take a step that will lead you toward the realization of your dream, and then take another, and another, and another." - Jesmyn Ward, Navigate Your Stars

Prior to Elemental Excelerator

During her time there, she discovered a joy for mission-driven work which led her to joining Elemental and shifting her focus to climate innovation. 
Sadie graduated from Princeton University with a B.A. in History and minors in Gender and Sexuality Studies and South Asian Studies. 

Outside of the office

Sadie lives in San Francisco and can regularly be found hiking, playing volleyball, buying more books that she can read, or drinking a hot cup of tea.
