Sarah completed her Masters of Public Administration in Non-Profit Policy and Management at NYU Wagner School of Public Service, with a specialization in International Policy and Management. Sarah is passionate about improving the way resources are allocated and delivered in the public service space, and has a background in international program design and evaluation.

Prior to joining Confluence Philanthropy, Sarah worked with an international service program in northern India, leading high school service programs to complete projects in orphanages and transitional homes for children who had been working in forced labor. During this experience she developed new partnerships with local service delivery organizations, and was able to share her love of Indian culture and international travel with students from around the globe. Sarah’s interest in the role of the private sector for public good led her to a research position with the Academy of Responsible Management, where she conducted qualitative research on corporate social responsibility in South East Asia for small and medium enterprises. Sarah’s experience also includes developing monitoring and evaluation systems for non-profits, as well as contributions to program and curriculum design for international youth development programs.
