Sarah grew up in Southern California and spent her summers in Portland, Oregon, and it was while she was engaged in a leadership program at a camp on the Oregon coast when she was 14 that she fell deeply in love with the Pacific Northwest, particularly the coastal vegetation including Sitka Spruce, ferns, and Salal berry. Sarah attended Reed College in Portland, Oregon, where she pursued a degree in English, and where she led outdoor trips for Reedies, served as a founding member of the Reed-Ecuador Project, and worked as a literacy coach for elementary youth. Sarah moved to Seattle to pursue her Master’s in Teaching from Seattle University in 2007, and she taught middle school English Language Arts, Humanities, and AVID in the Bellevue School District for 11 years while serving on a variety of curriculum and leadership teams during her tenure.

Sarah was introduced to Green Plate Special in 2018 and has volunteered in chicken care, youth programming, grocery distribution, and in the garden. She began apprenticing with Annie Reading and Full Harvest Gardener’s Tiffany Jones in April of 2020 and has grown her knowledge of food exponentially since then. Sarah is interested in examining the relationship between community gardens and kitchens, food insecurity, and mutual aid in Seattle, and sees GPS as a vital part of that conversation and development. In her free time, she enjoys reading, backpacking, surfing the Pacific Coast, baking, and spending time with friends, especially in the kitchen and garden. (She/her)
