During her nearly five years at Legal Aid, Sara managed a heavy caseload while developing trainings for fellow Maryland children’s advocates and partnering with community resource organizations to benefit her young clients.

In her spare time, Sara enjoys volunteering, and can always be found as a volunteer on various in-house committees, task forces, and outreaches, as well as participating with outside bar organizations. Through these programs, Sara exemplifies what it means to be a team player and can always be relied upon whenever she is needed.
