Regional Coordinator for the Great Lakes Region
John Sabin became a CCL volunteer in 2016 and founded the Oberlin, Ohio chapter a few months later. He has served as group leader of the Oberlin chapter since then. In the summer of 2018, he also became assistant Ohio coordinator.
He earned a masters degree in social work from New York University in 1990. He has worked as a psychotherapist for nearly 30 years and has also worked in hospice and palliative care. John and his partner Cathy have two adult daughters. He has been practicing Zen Buddhism for 30 years.
John values relationships and the interconnection of all life. He regards the work of CCL as honoring our interconnection, seeking to protect life on earth by conducting ourselves as clearly as we can with love. He is thrilled and honored to be doing this work with all of the wonderful volunteers in the Great Lakes region!
