Sarah was born and raised on California’s North Coast where she enjoyed the unspoiled beauty of its ancient redwood trees and dramatic coastline. It was her home state’s vulnerability to the impacts of climate change that sparked a passion for environmental stewardship early on for Sarah and would guide her career path.

After graduating high school, Sarah traded Northern California for the American University campus in Washington, D.C. where she studied Public Relations and Strategic Communications with a minor in Law and Society. Her first foray into politics was a college press internship with Congressman Scott Peters. Since then, she has served the offices of Representatives Jared Huffman, Annie Kuster, Jimmy Panetta, and the Select Committee on the Modernization of Congress under the leadership of Chair Derek Kilmer.

Sarah serves as the Senior Press Advisor to the Climate and Energy Program. Outside of the office, Sarah can be found scouring DMV antique shops for unique furniture and art finds, playing video games, buried in a novel, or relaxing with her two cats.
