Sarah is a fifth-generation Wisconsinite born in Eau Claire. Her parents were both public school teachers and proud union members. She learned early on that when you see something wrong, you stand up and do something about it.
Growing up in western Wisconsin, Sarah understands the struggles working Wisconsinites are facing and will fight to make progress on the kitchen table issues that matter most.
To help pay for college, Sarah waited tables at Pizza Hut and Bakers Square. She earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in peace and conflict resolution studies from George Mason University, where she was student body president. During that time, she helped to successfully lobby the Virginia Legislature to pass absentee ballot reforms, advocated for a measure to increase student financial aid by $16 million, and served as a student representative on a state higher education board.1 2
After graduating college, Sarah led strategic planning and project management efforts for the Department of Defense as a consultant with Booz Allen Hamilton. Her time working with the Pentagon included developing language and culture capabilities for the Under Secretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness, improving Army readiness for FORSCOM, creating a medical services strategy for the Air Force Surgeon General, and addressing soldier morale for the Assistant Secretary of the Army for Manpower and Reserve Affairs.
Sarah’s work in national security and foreign affairs continued as she was a member of a Bipartisan Congressional PTSD Task Force – a group that provided recommendations on how DoD and VA can better support military members, veterans, and their families. Sarah was also part of the volunteer UNICEF Board where she was Co-Chair of the Advocacy Committee and supported numerous projects that addressed child poverty.3 During Sarah’s time with UNICEF, she was lucky to meet her husband Max who also served on the board.4 In addition, Sarah’s microfinance work in rural India was transformative. She saw firsthand how access to capital can strengthen communities, help alleviate poverty while addressing gender inequalities. Her brief stint in India served as an inspiration that eventually led to co-founding an impact investment firm, MaSa Impact. The portfolio is mission-driven and invests in renewable and clean energy, women-owned businesses, and agriculture in Wisconsin and around the world.5 6
Sarah was a national security fellow with the Air War College and attended the Women’s Campaign School at Yale University. She has a Certificate in Public Treasury Management from the National Institute of Public Finance and Pepperdine School of Management. She attended the University of Virginia Sorensen Institute for Political Leadership and the University of Pennsylvania’s Executive Program for Public Administration.
