About Sarah

Currently, I am an associate and "utility player" for a DC based startup that developed an artificial intelligence platform to help nonprofits identify the right donors, grow their foundation bases, and fundraise smarter. By helping nonprofits grow their fundraising capabilities, we hope that they will be able to further advance their causes.

Previous to this, I was a Team Lead and Partnership Manager at American Corporate Partners (ACP) and committed to helping those who have served. I come from a military family and have seen firsthand the importance of support during the transition to a civilian career. I was honored to be a part of ACP and am excited to continue working with them as a representative of the organization in the DC metro area!

Prior to ACP, I worked as a business development consultant in the D.C. Metro Area and was the Director of Partnerships for a women's health start-up out of San Francisco. I also have a Bachelors in Military History as well as Masters in International History, with a focus on Military Strategy. I am happy to speak on business development (Federal and Commercial, small-large companies), establishing and maintaining partnerships, market research techniques as well as higher education. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, I am happy to help!
