Business Development Specialist
Sarah is our Business Development Specialist and as such, she helps local small businesses identify the solutions and services that they need to succeed. Her genuine interest in people as well as her varied hobbies and experiences give her a wonderfully diverse background to draw from which helps her connect with a wide range of small business goals, needs, and concerns. Her real passion in her role here at HDCav is helping Kitsap communities grow through supporting the success of small businesses. Born in Bremerton and raised in Belfair, she began serving her community at the age of 9 at Belfair’s Timberland Library where she reshelved books. Then at 16, as a volunteer firefighter medical technician and first aid/CPR instructor. Later in Tupelo MS, she volunteered with Civitan International, an organization dedicated to serving adults with developmental disabilities like autism, Down Syndrome, and other brain disorders. Sarah now occupies her time with wildlife and nature photography, making jewelry, paper crafting, antiquing, and learning about plants and herbs. She lives with her husband and 4 pets, remaining close to her daughters and grandchildren who all call Kitsap County home.
Some of her favorite nonprofits include St. Jude Children’s Hospital, Holly Ridge Center, Civitan International, Kitsap Humane Society, and the ASPCA. The best advice she’s ever been given is “To choose joy is to find freedom.”
