Sarah began her writing career in grade school when her grandmother published Sarah's early poetry in her weekly newspaper column. This ignited a passion for the written word and a desire to carefully edit, so as to never see her typos in print again.

Throughout her college and professional career, Sarah has developed writing skills that range from developing general business materials to creating compelling and clear appeals and content for fundraising efforts. With experience in higher education, including a medical college, Sarah strives to take highly technical information and make it accessible to any audience. After a career shift five years ago, Sarah added additional expertise in writing for a technology manufacturer to her arsenal of skills.

Sarah is accustomed to taking different subject matter and crafting it into content that can be used for a variety of purposes, from press releases to web content and correspondence. She has worked with web content managers to optimize SEO and selected keywords.

Sarah also published a weekly newspaper column for three years that examined less popular entertainment options (books, movies, and music).

In addition to her Bachelor's Degree in psychology, Sarah completed all but her thesis toward a Master's Degree in Philanthropic Studies. She has also received a Certificate in Public Administration.
