Public Relations Committee Co-Chair
Looking for experience and the opportunity to become more engaged with the Bellingham community, Sarah took on this role in August 2020. Her PR duties include: creating content for the KIMTC social media, communication with the public, and helping to plan & organize events for the Clinic! A big part of the reason Sarah chose to join the KIMTC board is because she admires the clinic’s effort to provide affordable and accessible therapies to children of Whatcom county: “This clinic puts in an incredible effort to make sure we are reaching kids and families who would otherwise have a difficult time accessing necessary therapies. These kiddos are the future of our communities, and it is so important to be able to give them the tools to be successful!” Sarah took two years off from college to pursue a professional career as an equine trainer, and is now back in school part time to complete her degree in Sociology through WSU Global Campus. In her free time she enjoys spending time at the barn, learning new things, and going on road trips with friends!
