How Kennari values guide my work: I place high value on helping clients learn how to incorporate best practices and impactful strategies in a way that fits their culture and organizational structure. I’m a storyteller at heart, so I especially enjoy helping clients effectively communicate their unique story to leverage community support and bring donors closer to the organization.

Sarah joined Kennari Consulting in 2017. As a Strategist, she has worked to help clients secure grant funding, effectively run capital campaigns, and grow their annual giving programs. She understands how under-resourced many nonprofits are and appreciates how Kennari can bring additional resources to the table to help clients improve their results. She especially enjoys helping clients develop communication strategies and write engaging appeals.

Sarah graduated from Aquinas College with a degree in political science. She has over a decade of nonprofit experience which has included helping organizations build capacity through program development and communications. She is also a proud AmeriCorps VISTA alum! Sarah enjoys hiking with her family, particularly in northern Michigan, as well as cooking and exploring antique stores. She is particularly passionate about animal welfare organizations and is a proud cat mama to her rescue cat, Ollie.
