Sarah completed her B.S. in Biology along with an A.S. in Veterinary Technology from Northwestern State University in Louisiana. Her interest in working with wildlife, specifically avian, began with her veterinary technician internship at Louisiana State University. Soon after moving to Vermont in 2001, her birding interests grew and she began as a loon volunteer with VCE. Volunteering with VCE for many more projects – Mountain Bird Watch, Bumblebee surveys, Forest Bird Monitoring – along with a host of data entry and office projects kept her busy over the years. In 2014, Sarah returned to her biology roots and began working on the Whip-poor-will project with the State of Vermont, and continues managing the project for VCE.
Sarah is detail-oriented and loves working with data, which is a great fit for her new Development Coordinator/Office Manager role at VCE. She looks forward to continuing her work with the talented team of biologists at VCE and forming new relationships with VCE supporters. Sarah and her husband live in Royalton, Vermont. She enjoys kayaking, remote camping, bird watching (and listening), leisurely drives on back roads, low-key whitewater kayaking, strolls in the woods, and sunsets.
