Sara has a bachelor’s degree in English from Rutgers University, a Master of Science in Social and Community Services from Capella University and a Master of Public Health with a focus in Epidemiology from Kaplan University. She has also completed a nonprofit management certification course from the Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits and is a graduate of Standards for Excellence in Nonprofit Management.
Sara is a freelance writer, writing a weekly column that is published statewide and has cultivated a wide circle of readers, including some out of state. She also writes special pieces for newspapers and magazines.
Currently, Sara is serving as the Southwest OKCEO for the Potts Foundation. In this role, she is working to further the importance of early childhood education. She also serves as a community educator for the Alzheimer Association.
Sara has over ten years’ experience managing nonprofits, including turnaround situations, and is an accomplished grant writer. She has founded a county-wide coalition and worked with several national partners to improve the local community. Sara has partnered with Catholic Charities to teach English as a second language and citizenship classes. She has extensive experience leading classes in topics from leadership to good management to learning about yourself.
Sara believes a good team is one that is built upon strengths and skills, utilizing exemplary communication skills. Sara has experience in public speaking, speech writing, and negotiations. She is bilingual and has interpreted in many professional settings.
But of all her accomplishments, raising her daughter is her proudest, no accomplishment will ever surmount the pride she feels as she watches her daughter grow into an incredible woman. She is married with one daughter and three rescue dogs. Her family is most valued to her, followed by her community. She believes we all serve a purpose in this life, and it is our responsibility and duty to leave everything better than we found it.
True to her Southern California roots, Sara can most often be found in cutoffs and flip flops, taking care of her dogs and laughing with her daughter. She is most comfortable outside, surrounded by water, with people who are passionate about fighting social justice issues.
