Meet Your Fractional CLA
Sarah here, and I'm thrilled we're connecting.
As your fractional CLA, I'm committed to collaborating with you to share your genius, change lives, and strategically level up your online course offerings.
When I’m not empowering fellow course creators, you can find me outdoors with my two feline boys, staying active through running, rowing, or hitting new trails. I also enjoy curling up with a good book and discovering new cuisines.
With over 20 years of experience as a PhD specialized in online course design, I thoroughly assess program health to prescribe targeted optimizations. My passion is guiding entrepreneurs (niche experts) to unlock their courses’ full potential through hands-on consulting.
Guiding Niche Experts
to Unlock their Courses' Full Potential
In a world eager to dictate what you should create; I empower you with the practical frameworks to bring your vision to life. My goal is to equip you to build thriving courses through actionable steps, not surface-level inspiration. I provide straightforward guidance with compassion – arming you to optimize impact.
Over Two Decades Driving Innovation
My calling found me after over two decades developing cutting-edge curriculum and driving innovation with organizations ranging from classrooms to esteemed universities, as well as startups, tech companies, and independent entrepreneurs. Though deeply meaningful work, an underlying sense of misalignment persisted.

A Moment of Clarity
In a startling moment of clarity, I realized purpose and freedom eclipsed chasing external validation. I rediscovered my early career passion for designing truly transformative learning experiences unconstrained by others’ guidelines. I dreamed of empowering fellow creators to unlock their potential too.
Stepping into My Entrepreneurial Purpose
My entrepreneurial drive flows through my Huibregtse genes. Like my grandpa and great-grandpas innovating in our town, and my father continually inventing gadgets, I’ve always felt pulled to create and empower without limits. Even in past roles, I seized opportunities to learn, challenge myself, and work with mentors. Though deeply meaningful, an underlying misalignment persisted.
Like my grandpa exploring trails on his motorcycle, I was driven to forge my own path. The urge to fully pursue my purpose became irresistible. I wanted to shape my journey on meaning, empowering creators worldwide through experiential learning like my grandpa ideating, designing, and launching his snowmobile.
Now, as an fCLA, I guide entrepreneurs and program leaders to create human-centered online learning experiences that unlock their courses’ full potential for impact. My approach focuses on real-world application, bringing course concepts to life.
Guiding Creators Today
Today, experienced entrepreneurs, and program leaders, seek my guidance to reach new heights with their thriving courses. Aspiring creators, with no restrictions on their dreams, find a compassionate partner in me to bring their visions to life. My goal is illuminating the path for fellow entrepreneurs and innovative leaders by equipping them with proven strategies to create the courses they’ve always imagined. I help turn their dreams into reality by arming them with the tools to foster human connection and make meaningful impact.
Praise From Others
Unlocking Human Potential Through Online Learning
I’m devoted to equipping fellow entrepreneurs with strategies to create thriving courses that authentically reflect their essence. Together we arm you with frameworks to share your expertise and maximize impact.
Today, I’m passionate about guiding creators through 1:1 consulting, hands-on programs, events, and speaking. I love enabling service providers to build offerings that create positive change.
Outside of illuminating the path for others, you’ll find me pursuing work-life harmony with loved ones while staying active and exploring new trails. I recharge by nourishing mind and body.
My mission is to help unlock human potential worldwide through online learning. With compassion and conviction, we can empower minds across the globe by mastering the art and science of impactful course creation.
Like the USS Mount Hood pictured leaving dry dock restored, courses can emerge renewed too. Just as ships dry dock for rehabilitation, courses may dock, plagued by issues inhibiting impact.
My purpose is diagnosing issues inhibiting impact, guiding you from red oceans of stagnation to discover wide open blue oceans of opportunity. With treatment plans, automation tools, and fellow creators’ support, your revitalized course will embark smoothly to reach eager clients.
By assessing course health, prescribing optimizations, simplifying processes, and implementing thoughtful improvements, I can guide you from the dry dock of stagnation to discover uncharted blue oceans ahead.

Notes About My Journey
When giving advice, shared experiences are more impactful than opinions. As author Laura Meyer says, “I simply shared my experience, telling her not what she should do but my thinking when I was in her shoes.” Sharing our journeys provides context, mapping the twists and turns we navigated. In my practice, conveying examples from my experiences gives clients a framework to creatively tackle challenges. The next time someone asks your advice, try relating an experience over an opinion to build trust and growth. Read on to learn more about the power of shared experiences versus opinions when offering valuable advice.
