ABOUT SARAH

I have worked with people from all walks of life and have enjoyed learning along the way.  I remember when I got my first job working with people.  It was my second year of college, and I wanted to volunteer.   I ended up getting a paid job at Shaw House (then only a homeless shelter for teens), because they did not take volunteers.  I didn't really know what I was in for.

Since then, I have learned a lot about helping people and have honed my skills. 

‚ÄčRandom factoids about me:

 

  • I have always been passionate about fairness, justice, and helping others.

 

  • As a kid, I read nearly every book I could get my hands on.  Two of my favorite authors from childhood are J.R.R. Tolkien and Roald Dahl.

 

  • Silence is okay.  I can sit in silence with people and feel okay with not speaking.  Sometimes silence helps a lot more than words.

 

  • I try to meditate everyday for at least 30 minutes.  When I keep up with my regular practice, I notice feeling happier and more at ease.
