About Sarah


A leader and a Lincoln mom who wants the best library for our community.

 It is a privilege to be considered to represent you as an Oak Park Library Board Trustee. I began my commitment to public service more than 16 years ago working for our U.S. Senator Richard J. Durbin.  Since that time, I've led non-profits and corporations stewarding financial investments in community partners and arts and cultural organizations.  

I currently direct the community investment team at United Airlines managing a budget of more than $10 million.  I hold partners accountable to their goals, drive collaboration across sectors and improve efficiencies which makes me uniquely qualified to lead the Oak Park Library team to create exceptional programming, improve operations and support transparent management.   

I live in southwest Oak Park with my husband and two best library buddies, Claire and Martin.
