Sarah's charitable interests stem from two of her long and deep running passions: promoting women in sports and supporting the advancement of Latin America.
Sarah played point guard for the Washington University Bears from 2000 until 2004. She was a member of the 2001 National Championship squad, served as team captain in 2003 and 2004, and was selected to the UAA All-Academic team. During Law School, she coached the JV basketball team at her high school, St. Joseph's Academy. In recent years, Sarah has carried her basketball tradition forward. She is a member of the Saint Louis University Hoop Troop, which connects college athletes with local professional women and business leaders. She also is a member of Washington University's W-Club.
Similarly, Sarah has a passion for Latin America that motivates her philanthropic efforts. After college, Sarah moved to San Cristobal de Las Casas, Chiapas, Mexico. There, she worked for the Chiapas Photography Project, a Ford Foundation grant recipient. Additionally, Sarah founded a Catholic women's group in the rural community of Huixtan. Now, Sarah carries her passion for Latin America forward. She serves as a Board Member for the Migrant and Immigrant Community Action Project. She also continues her service to the people of southern Mexico as an Advisory Board member for the Chiapas Photography Project. In March 2014, Sarah traveled with and translated for a "brigade" of doctors and healthcare workers who spent a week at Hospital Hermano Pedro in Catacamas, Honduras providing obstetrical and gynecologic services to women in need. Furthermore, Sarah takes a number of pro bono immigration cases each year through referrals from Legal Services of Eastern Missouri.
