About Sarah


I’ve been a grad student, TA, RA, course designer, instructor, editor, and learning strategist.

I believe strongly in collaborative work, empathy, and kindness.

I have substantial experience working with students with a spectrum of disabilities and from a diverse variety of backgrounds.

Helping people develop tools, strategies, and skills that allow them to define and pursue their goals has been by far my most satisfying work in academia.

Higher education is hard. (Sometimes really, really hard.) I can help!
