Sarah studied Philosophy, Politics, and Economics at Scripps College in Claremont, CA, where she wrote her senior thesis on how parental leave and childcare policies impact working mothers and women’s economic security. She spent a year in Jerusalem participating in the Israel Government Fellows program and working for the Israel Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs’ Department of International Relations, and she previously worked as a fundraising consultant for Maryland State and local Democratic candidates and elected officials. Sarah serves on the board of Camp Louise Circle, the alumni organization for the Jewish sleepaway camp she attended and worked at for many years. She enjoys dancing, making and drinking coffee, attending live concerts and musical theater performances, and playing with her dog, Huxley.
