A journalism major from Boston University’s College of Communications, she has been working in the children’s publishing industry for 15 years and truly believes that picture books have the power to change the world.

Sarah is interested in stories that will engage and inspire young readers. She has a soft spot for science/nature and environment, joyful stories, lyrical read alouds, and quirky humor.
