Sara joined the University Advancement team in November 2013. Her position as Department Assistant gives her the opportunity to pursue one of her passions of helping others. She graduated from the University of South Alabama in 2006 with a B.A. in Communications with an emphasis in Public Relations. After graduation, she worked as a Marketing and Public Relations Coordinator for an engineering firm for four and a half years. In 2011, she married her husband and they moved to Sitka, Alaska, where her husband worked at the U.S. Coast Guard Air Station. While in Alaska they enjoyed hiking, photography, and fishing. During her time in Sitka, Alaska, Sara earned her M.B.A. from Columbia Southern University and worked as a Program Manager at a nonprofit career center. In the summer of 2013, she and her husband relocated to San Diego.

Sara enjoys the beach, hiking, volunteering for nonprofits, biking, traveling, nature, reading, and spending time with the family’s spunky rat terrier, Oliver, and their two cats.
