When Sarah Banks worked with LEARN NC, she was working on her Ph.D. in Parks, Recreation, and Tourism Management. She is currently part of the Sustainable Development program faculty at Appalachian State University. Her research interests lie in the impacts of tourism development on host communities, community involvement and empowerment derived through dispersed benefit resulting from such development, specific conditions and limitations inherent to coastal/island tourism development and management, and interactions of human recreation and tourism on natural ecosystems and host society makeup.
