Sara builds community around what she loves, leading trips with Wild Wilderness Women, serving on the board of RecycleMania (a competition to inspire the reduction of waste on college campuses), and serving as membership chair at her community garden. She is a bicycle commuter and is currently challenging herself to eat and creatively cook more vegetables after joining a CSA.

Sara works at the Urban Land Institute, connecting headquarters staff and resources to ULI's offices across North America to support the organization's mission of building healthy, thriving, sustainable cities. Previously, Sara was a founding staff member at Food Recovery Network, growing the organization from 20 to 200 campus chapters that recovered one million pounds of surplus edible food during her three year tenure.
