Sarah has worked for a private hospital foundation managing fundraising and internal and external marketing initiatives. She has served on the leadership teams of two nationally regarded programs of The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. First, she was assistant director of an adult day services initiative, providing technical assistance and training to help programs develop and strengthen innovative center-based respite services for people with chronic cognitive disorders, particularly dementia.
