"Open IDEO Austin collaborated with Experimental Civics for the UT Girl Day event. The event was personally very satisfying as we are helping grow the next generation of leaders with empathy. Sarah is a fantastic coordinator and activist who inspires everyone she meets. Loved working together."

“Sarah's vision for curating large programming, event planning and civic engagement is demonstrated in the scope of the civic hackathon she has developed. The hackathon was recognized by a senior program director at St. Edward’s who shared with me that until seeing the 2016 event, he had never conceived of using and featuring the several venues that were used on campus.”

“Sarah's passion for social good is unquestionable, but what separates her is her ability to channel that passion into the creation of effective programs that create a measurable impact in the community. Her talents and affability allow her to engage a diverse community and inspire them to become agents of positive change.”
— LANCE MCNEILL
"Since graduating in 2012, Sarah has done nothing but continue to hone her ability to observe trends and connect seemingly disparate dots, generating lasting innovative solutions to larger scale problems. Her more recent work in designing Civic Hackathons is the perfect embodiment of this - drawing on all members of communities to address community problems within urban centers ranging from cyclist safety to accessibility of locally grown foods,. And through these accomplishments, she remains among the most modest, genuine people I know, her ambition is sourced from the profound desire to help others and give back to a global community."
