My college career was entirely devoted to gaining a better understanding of how to solve the world’s most pressing environmental and human rights issues through activism, community, and public policy. My fields of study were, at times, intimidating and discouraging; there are always so many wrongs to be made right, and so much standing in the way of progress. Working at the Campion Advocacy Fund, however, allows me to see the power of collaboration and advocacy in action. The values we stand for and the things we accomplish keep me thinking positively about the potential for progress, and I am thrilled to be part of a team that does such meaningful work.
As Program & Operations Associate, Sara supports the Campion staff by managing the office’s files, contracts, inventories, and schedules. She brings attention to detail, a strong work ethic, and a knack for organization to her position. Recently graduated from the University of Washington, Bothell, Sara holds a B.A. in Environmental Studies, a B.A. in Law, Economics, and Public Policy, and a minor in Human Rights. During her college career, she was fortunate enough to study conservation, ecology, and environmental geography in both Ecuador and Peru, as well as research international human rights policy in Washington, D.C. Sara is particularly passionate about global environmental justice and human rights efforts, and sees herself one day working directly with public policy. Before joining the team, Sara taught ballet and contemporary dance classes in various Seattle-area studios. As a dancer and choreographer, Sara received a number of awards and recognitions, including five regional awards for her unique choreography. Outside of work, Sara can reliably be found reading science fiction, perusing international news, exercising, or spending quality time with her husband, Josh.
