What the nominator said:

“Sarah is an incredible woman. She is kind, passionate and wicked smart. She is forward-thinking and committed to making our state a better place through both her philanthropic activities and her public service. She is leaving her mark on southern Delaware, particularly in her work on the board with The Next Generation of South Delaware.”

Social media platform you can’t live without:


Biggest break:

“My biggest break was being hired to work in the office of Gov. Ruth Ann Minner shortly after graduating from the University of Delaware. Working for Gov. Minner afforded me countless opportunities I likely would not have had in other positions, including a comprehensive education on all facets of state government and numerous professional connections with key policymakers throughout the First State.”

Two words that best describe you:

Passionate and tenacious.

Work/life balance technique you recommend:

“As a mom, I treasure the quality time I get to spend with my son. When you have a demanding job, you are not going to make every single baseball game or every moment in your loved ones’ lives, but when you are there, make it count.”

Your advice for the next generation:

“Honor your commitments.”

In one sentence, define success:

“Success is loving what you do and loving how you do it.”
