STORY OF THE FOUNDER
Sas Carey
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. She founded Nomadicare in 1994 to improve the health care and cultural survival of Mongolia’s nomadic herders.
