Sarah is deeply committed to community service. She serves on the Board of Trustees for Urban Ministry Center, is a member of the Women’s Impact Fund and of Women Executives, and she currently chairs the Board of Directors for The Red Boot Way.
But if you ask her what she is most proud of, she will simply say, “teaching the chronically homeless how to cook.” The program was born in 2013 when Sarah volunteered to teach a monthly cooking class to men and women who had been homeless, but who now, through the Urban Ministry Center, had found permanent housing at Moore Place.
Today, that simple idea has grown to become the Housing Works Culinary Arts Program and has expanded to include field trips, lessons from guest chefs, and other fun and exciting culinary experiences.
In 2012 Sarah graduated from Leadership Charlotte, Class 34, and after serving as a volunteer on the Alumni Committee for several years, she joined their Board of Directors in 2017. She also heads up their Investment Committee.
Sarah is a self-described foodie – whether it’s teaching, whipping up a gourmet meal for friends and family, or exploring the burgeoning restaurant scene in Charlotte (which she has called home for 12 years). When she’s not eating, Sarah loves being physically active and can often be found cycling indoors at FlyWheel or hiking outdoors with her boyfriend.
