Board Member and Secretary
Sarah is an attorney in Bellingham, Washington and has spent her entire career in public service. Most recently, Sarah worked as a staff attorney at Northwest Justice Project representing low-income immigrant women in domestic violence, immigration, and child custody cases. In that position, she witnessed how access to basic resources was a critical factor in an individual’s ability to break free from the cycle of violence and abuse. Sarah is dedicated to making our community one where all immigrants have access to these essential resources.
Before becoming an attorney, Sarah spent two years as a Peace Corps Volunteer living in a remote rural community on the Dominican Republic/Haiti border, where she worked to obtain birth certificates, passports, and other identity documents for stateless Haitians and Dominicans. Sarah has also volunteered and interned at several immigrant advocacy organizations, including CASA Latina, Northwest Immigrant Rights Project, and Southern Poverty Law Center’s Immigrant Justice Project. She currently is an Assistant City Attorney at the Bellingham City Attorney’s Office.
In her spare time, Sarah loves jazz singing, cycling, baking, and spending time with her husband and daughter.
