Sarah comes to Webb from the world of college admissions, where she recruited international and out-of-state students. Sarah holds a Bachelor of Arts in English and Religion from St. Olaf College and a Master of Arts in English from California State Polytechnic University Pomona. Prior to this, Sarah attended a boarding school in England where she remembers with fondness the dichotomy of strict guidelines and playful pranks. With one brother belonging to The Webb School for Boys, Class of 2006, and the other brother being married in the Vivian Webb Chapel in 2005, now Sarah’s favorite place on campus due to its serenity, Sarah feels at home at Webb and is happy to return to a boarding community. She believes in the healthy relationship between hard work and fun. Sarah finds personal significance in the Honor Code at Webb, her life motto being that sometimes you have to do the things you don’t want to do, in order to become the person that you want to become.
