Sarah grew up in Connecticut, but Massachusetts has always felt like a second home with extended family in the state. Sarah moved to Boston after graduation from her master of public health program. As her career has evolved Sarah has found a passion in process improvement and making healthcare less complicated so patients and clinicians can focus on the care. Sarah met her husband covered in sweat and lifting weights at a local Crossfit gym (talk about first impressions!). They adopted a rescue pup from Mississippi and welcomed their daughter in 2021. After nearly a decade of city living, Sarah and her family are headed to the Metro West suburbs to start a new adventure. Sarah volunteers for Community Consulting Teams of Boston (CCT), offering pro bono management consulting to Boston-area nonprofits, and she recently completed a three-year term on the board. She is a member of the Kappa Delta sorority and has served as an advisor to the Northeastern chapter for the last six years.
