Sara joined the Foundation in 2017 as Executive Assistant to Donna Dean and Lai Chun. She has over 10 years’ experience working as an executive assistant across many industries including finance, consulting and, most recently, the New York State government where she was the executive assistant to the Commissioner at Empire State Development. Sara hails from Ohio but, after moving to the city to attend New York University, she now considers herself an official New Yorker, making it her home for over 12 years and counting.
While Sara enjoys her work, she also leaves time for her creativity to shine and spends most weekends painting or making candles, that is, if her husband doesn’t take her to a Mets game. She also loves to be outdoors and spending time with her family on their Ohio farm or sailing in Maryland.
