The heart of my work is supporting racial equity at the intersections of education, environment, health, and economy.


I enjoy bringing bold visions to life. Whether it be plotting organizational strategy, organizing a detailed grant proposal, streamlining processes, or converting ideas to visuals, I have a knack for taking what feels big – even chaotic – and making it clear and compelling.

Over the past decade, I have served as an in-house grant writer, capacity strategist, and consultant for a variety for social justice efforts, including: racial justice, anti-trafficking, environmental justice, youth organizing, animal welfare, elder care, health, housing, arts, and international development.


I am an Licensed Graduate Social Worker (LGSW) and trained in mediation at the Social Justice Mediation Institute in Amherst, MA. I earned my Master of Social Work at the University of Michigan with a focus on Afrocentric social work and community organizing. I earned my B.A. in English and religious studies at Lawrence University in Appleton, WI. I'm a Wisconsin native and currently live in Saint Paul, MN.


"Sarah is a tremendously talented non-profit professional. Her work was always thorough, detail-oriented, and thoughtful. Her knowledge of the grants landscape is extensive and helped expedite the process of identifying funding for new projects. In addition to stellar work, Sarah is a kind and wonderful colleague to work with."
