Sarah is the Senior Communications Specialist at the Friedman School, working with and reporting directly to the Director of Communications and Web Strategies, Annie DeVane, and is part of the small Web and Communications Team at the School.
Sarah is responsible for programming the School's social media channels and creating/designing digital and printed content for the School's website, high profile events, and social media, and marketing materials. Sarah also works with project managers within the Friedman School's diverse research areas to support social media outreach, graphic design needs, and education about Tufts University/Friedman School brand standards and communications best practices.
A Tufts alumna, Sarah earned her BFA degree with a focus on Performance Art and Multimedia Design from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, and is currently finishing up the Graphic Design Certificate program at SMFA.
Sarah has previously worked with small businesses to develop brand strategies and cultivate social media presences, and continues to do work in this vein outside of Tufts, as a freelance graphic designer and illustrator. Her previous life as a studio and touring musician brought her into contact with a fantastically diverse range of people, and she brings this collaborative, creative spirit into her communications work at Tufts.
