Helping Children and Families Navigate Life
When Sarah was little, she loved the farm she grew up on. It allowed her to follow her agriculture passion, while also being very active in 4H as she showed beef cattle. Sarah is committed to promoting agriculture in any way possible; by being on the Buffalo County 4H Council, a 4H leader, and a mother, it has allowed her to do so well. As an adult, one of her favorite hobbies is raising show sheep and goats with her daughter, going to livestock shows and being with her family. Her family includes her husband, three children, her parents, and “a whole lot of animals.”
Sarah received her bachelor’s degree from Chadron State College in Interdisciplinary Studies with a matchup of Animal Sciences and Journalism. She feels that in a “roundabout way” it led her to her true calling in the therapy field. During her time at school, she found that her passion was to help others, especially kids. She is currently on her final stretch at Bellevue University obtaining a degree in Community Counseling.
After 14 years working in a daycare setting, and joining the Compass team, her drive to care for children has expanded to children in foster care. She believes that all children deserve their voice to be heard and guided to a journey of healing and hope. She feels that God has led her to this place in life, so that she can help children who feel muted and encourage them to achieve any goals and dreams.
