A music educator by training, Sarah has presented talks on best PR and social media practices for the Music Publishers Association, Opera America, James Madison University, and Princeton University, as well as for the podcast Composer on Fire. She graduated cum laude with a Bachelor of Music (Brass Concentration) and a minor in Education from James Madison University in 2000 and taught elementary school general music (Miami-Dade County, Florida) and middle school chorus (Stafford County, Virginia) before moving to New York City in 2004 to learn the ropes of public relations at Shuman Associates.
 
A French hornist, singer, and songwriter, Sarah is an alumna of both Brooklyn Wind Symphony and Young New Yorkers Chorus as well as an active participant in the choir and musical life of Park Slope United Methodist Church. She fronts her songwriting projects under the band name The Scarlet K and can be found daily singing original transition songs and lullabies under the name Mommia for a sparky three year old. Sarah is frequently accompanied by two choodles, Mister Roo and Chou Chou (pictured right).
