Sarah started her public health career working as an HIV/AIDS research assistant in Durham, North Carolina. She continued to work in the field of HIV research while obtaining her master’s degree in Washington, DC and upon graduation she accepted a position as an ASPPH Allan Rosenfield Global Health Fellow where she worked on PEPFAR programs from CDC field offices in DRC and Vietnam. She worked with ministers of health, international NGOs, and multilateral organizations on issues related to capacity building and health systems strengthening. Her work with PEPFAR sparked an interest in public private partnerships and helped prepare her for her work in South Africa where she worked with corporate partners to help fund youth development programs. Sarah moved back to the Triangle area in 2016 and is excited to be using her diverse experiences and skillset to contribute to the innovative work of the global health economics team.
