Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, Sarah moved to Tacoma in 2013 to attend the University of Puget Sound, where she graduated with a degree in International Political Economy. Sarah spent time in Paris working on the issue of unaccompanied minor refugees, returning to Tacoma to work for the Sexual Assault Center for Pierce County. While there, she developed and expanded their anti-trafficking program and county-wide response to the issue, with a particular focus on serving Pierce County’s youth population. Currently working for the education mentorship nonprofit Palmer Scholars, Sarah continues to serve youth and bring about positive change in youth development services. In her free time, she loves to backpack, play ultimate frisbee and bake.
