She received a BA in Anthropology & Social Studies from Western Washington University and a MBA from Seattle University. After completing a Certificate in Women’s Leadership through Gonzaga University’s School of Leadership Studies in the Spring of 2019 she took the next step in her career and personal journey to support small business, advocate for flexible work, and to spend more time with her young family.

Sarah lives in Woodinville with her husband and two children. They recently bought a Victorian style home built in the 80’s and are excited to make it their own with an abundance of remodel projects planned. Though free time is scarce these days, Sarah loves to read, travel, and test out new grain free recipes on her family with the hope that they will eat them.
