Sarah is a true Fusionite at heart and has always loved working with adolescents. She spent many years working in the classroom with students on the Autism Spectrum and other developmental disabilities, as well as in the school counseling office of a public middle and high school in Brooklyn, New York. From her previous experiences Sarah has learned that being able to meet every student where they are and moving forward together is the key to success. Sarah cherishes the connections she forms with her students, as each one is special and unique.
Sarah earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and Sociology from Hunter College and a Master’s Degree in School Counseling from New York University. Before starting her journey at Fusion Academy, she worked with her students focusing on important life skills, specifically on social and emotional learning in order to achieve academically, as well as working intensively with her students on their college applications. Sarah has continued this work with her students since beginning work at Fusion Academy. She believes in the importance to provide a safe and comfortable space to explore the many Post-Secondary options that students can choose from and emphasizes the idea that there is not one way of reaching those personal goals. Through one-on-one sessions Sarah and her students are able to research and understand the student’s desires and needs for post-secondary life.
In her free time Sarah is an avid runner and sports enthusiast. She is a strong believer in a holistic approach to being happy and healthy.
