Sarah supports the analysis of district resource use, helping districts understand how their resource allocation aligns to their strategic goals. Her most current work involves analyzing school-level resource use in Shelby County Schools and conducting a School System 20/20 diagnostic for the Avoyelles Parish School Board in her home state of Louisiana. Her past experience at ERS has also included work with Tulsa Public Schools and Spring Branch Independent School District as well as a study profiling strategic teacher professional learning practices in school systems across the country. Sarah also works with Karen Silverman to support the organization's strategic planning practices.
Prior to joining ERS, Sarah studied at the Goizueta Business School at Emory University, where she concentrated in Strategy & Management Consulting. As an undergraduate, she worked in consulting engagements with various Atlanta-area non-profits. She also interned with Education Pioneers in New Orleans, where she supported the Summer Graduate School Fellowship.
Sarah enjoys cooking, hiking, horseback riding, traveling (especially to national parks), and enthusiastically watching the latest episode of Chopped. A New Orleans native, she has enjoyed exploring and getting to know the Boston area.
