Senior Communications and Liaison Officer
While visiting a dear friend in Lebanon in May 2021, Sarah was inspired by the vision, commitment, and warmth of the team at LSESD. Four months later, she left her corporate PR role and moved to Beirut to join the staff as Senior Communications and Liaison Officer.
This major life change was long in the making. Growing up, her family often opened their home to international missionaries while on furlough, and she was captivated by the history and beauty of other countries. In 2015, Nabil Costa preached at her church, emphasizing the ways Lebanese Christians were choosing forgiveness over prejudice in order to minister to the incoming Syrian refugee population. Sarah interviewed him for the Baylor Lariat newspaper, writing a story on how American students could aid in the refugee crisis. After this, Sarah continued to study the Middle East through her history and journalism degree at Baylor University.
After graduation, Sarah took her love of storytelling into the communications field. She began as a strategy associate and copywriter at 70kft, a creative firm focused on B2B tech. She then joined Golin, a global communications firm, where she managed social media strategy, influencer programs, and paid advertising for Fortune 500 brands such as Cisco and Texas Instruments, as well as social impact organizations like Understood.org. She established a niche in education marketing, contributing to pitches for LEGO, Logitech, and Adobe.
In addition to her work, Sarah loves exploring new hiking trails, road-tripping with the perfect playlist, or writing poetry. Her faith informs her passion for sustainability, ethical consumption, and youth ministry. Inspired by her Creator, she strives to make the world a little more beautiful every day.
“What you do in the present—by painting, preaching, singing, sewing, praying, teaching, building hospitals, digging wells, campaigning for justice, writing poems, caring for the needy, loving your neighbor as yourself—will last into God’s future. These activities are not simply ways of making the present life a little more bearable…They are part of what we may call building for God’s kingdom.” N.T. Wright.
