STORY OF THE FOUNDER
Founder & Director of Nomadicare
As a seeker for the place where earth, spirit, and healing intersect, Sas Carey has been searching in Mongolia for over two decades. She is a registered nurse, energy healer, educator, author, and filmmaker. Since her feet first touched Mongolian ground back in 1994, Sas Carey felt there was some reason she was being sent half way around the world to this land. Following that, she has documented the Mongolian Nomadic lifestyle for various audiences through her collaboration with many producers and writers.
Trained as a biologist and a Dukha himself, Battulga guides the Nomadicare team through the taiga (boggy forest) and the cultural forays of the reindeer herders. As our Tuvan language interpreter, he schedules shaman interviews, plans and organizes transportation in the taiga, and is responsible for the safety of the team while riding reindeer or horses to the settlements.
