- Washington D.C.
With nine years of public relations and writing experience including almost two in an active warzone, works well under pressure is an understatement. Demonstrated event planning prowess, copious experience managing volunteers and a passion for writing and editing.
Former USO Kandahar Center Manager
It would be cliché to say that she laughed in the face of danger out here in Afghanistan, but what she did do is successfully acclimatize herself to the challenges of living and working in the environment and then proceeded to develop into a top flight USO staffer. She has handled programs, volunteers and handled all of our social and print media as well. She’s very well known out here and has wonderful contacts, she is creative in finding very human stories and and brought what we do to clear and poignant words through articles and her blog as well. The regional leadership as well as 3-4 center managers can attest to Sarah’s worth as a person and a USO asset.
Marshall University Director of Recruitment
Sarah's talents and skills far exceed anything I can fully describe in this forum. She is a superb writer and has the rare ability to write effectively for a wide variety of audiences in a number of formats. She is creative, highly organized, and energetic. She is always willing to go far beyond people's expectations, and never hesitates to contribute to the betterment of the team. She is never daunted by taking on a new challenge. She has my highest endorsement, and would be an asset to any organization.
Short story creation while people watching, completing races (not necessarily the running part), any outdoor activity in West Virginia (except for whitewater rafting), learning to swim, reading aloud in funny voices to my baby niece, discovering the best boxed red wine, reading memoirs, and devouring magazines: Outside, Runner's World, Wonderful West Virginia, Reader's Digest, On Patrol, and the occasional Real Simple, or HGTV Magazine
