About

Hello! My name is Sarah and I am a junior pursuing a degree in Public & NonProfit Administration with a minor in Urban & Regional Planning. I also serve as the Community Outreach Officer for SLAM (Students Leaving A Mark), a student organization at GV that serves to engage in community service through local neighborhoods and organizations. As the CO, I am responsible for networking with nonprofit organizations to provide SLAM with opportunities for service. Once a year we also visit an out-of-state area affected by a natural disaster to assist with relief efforts. We are so lucky that Grand Valley provides us with the tools needed to accomplish such adventures! My favorite aspect of being a Laker has been becoming more aware of our ability and duty to become more compassionate global citizens.

In my free time, I enjoy watching movies, spending time with my mom, going to concerts and comedy shows, bad kite-flying, and eating snacks (pro-tip: always carry snacks; at least one salty and one sweet). This is my first year working at the CSLC and I can’t wait to be a resource for fellow Lakers to help us all become more!
