Sara’s double-major in English Literature and Theater was awarded by San Francisco State University. Before taking up acting in the fog-belt, she attended CSU Sacramento, studying writing and linguistics while holding down a journalism internship with Sacramento’s Suttertown News. After years of balancing musical-theater roles with administrative paychecks in academia and non-profits (and traveling the world!), she joined Loyola University New Orleans in 2010. She supervised a departmental office until January 2015, when she moved to the Office of the Dean in the College of Humanities and Natural Sciences (HNS). Sara was awarded the HNS Staff Excellence Award for the 2013-14 school year. As one of two Academic Advisor's in the Dean's office, some of her work includes assisting Admissions by meeting with prospective students and providing transfer evaluations; participating in orientation for new students and preparing/updating student schedules; assisting Student Records and the academic departments with coordination of the fall, spring, and summer schedules; processing changes of major and minor, and program substitutions; assisting in the annual updating of dpcls and the Bulletin, as well as aiding in the development of materials for articulation agreements with other schools; assisting students and faculty with OnCourse issues; helping coordinate student awards and the Honors convocation; auditing, reviewing, and certifying student's records for graduation; and dispensing wisdom and cheek of all kinds to those in need.
