Prior to joining the academic advising team at Temple, Sara worked at Penn State Hershey Rehabilitation Hospital as a Recreational Therapist, treating children and adults who have experienced a brain injury, stroke, spinal cord injury, neurological disorder, or amputation. Sara jumped on the opportunity to come back to Temple in the Fall of 2015, advising the Undergraduate Therapeutic Recreation students within the College of Public Health. In her free time, Sara enjoys traveling, camping, and hiking with her husband and four-year-old goldendoodle, Koda. Sara is excited to be back at Temple University, working with students and faculty who share her passion for TR.
