During the week she meets with students for pastoral care or just a walk around the campus.

Sarah's start in chaplaincy began as a school chaplain at King’s College School, a boys’ independent day school in Wimbledon, England. There, in addition to teaching world religions, philosophy and ethics, she also ministered to a multi-faith student body and staff and coached sports. She has also served in three parishes over the past two decades both in London, England as well as in New Hampshire and Massachusetts.
Sarah is a wife, and the mother of two children, Elizabeth, 19 (a sophomore at Lehigh University) and Will, 23 (a recent graduate of Penn State) who is now working in Boston.
