She had previously served as the associate director of the Volunteer Centers of Michigan in Lansing, and helped found the Volunteer Centers of Washington and Washington Nonprofits. Sara was 36 years old when she passed away in Olympia, WA in March of 2011 after suffering a pulmonary embolism. This Scholarship Fund was established in memory of Sara for young individuals to be educated to continue the work she so deeply believed in, that of volunteerism.
