Putting My Experience
A native of Arizona, Sarah was born in Laveen and raised in Maryvale. She grew up in a single parent home, surviving abuse and poverty.
She graduated from Trevor Browne High School at the age of 17! After graduating, she joined the United States Army and served our great country for 8 years.
At 21 she received her first Undergrad Degree in Social Work, followed by a second in Political Science. She then earned her Master’s Degree in Social Work.
After college, her work in the non-profit sector allowed her to work with legislators in Tennessee and Utah, providing knowledge, testifying in committee hearings and writing bills that now help provide safety and security for constituents.
It also allowed her to work together with other vulnerable and systemically oppressed populations. She recently served as the Medical Special Needs Coordinator at Luke Air Force Base, where she was able to continue giving back to her sisters and brothers in arms, by serving their families.
As a small business owner, she believes in autonomy. More than ever, she appreciates the freedom of choice because it has allowed her to step away from a world of survival and move into a world of abundance!
She is a firm believer in justice for all and not just some. She believes not just in equality, but in equity and that together, as a community, everyone can succeed!
