Serving in an advisory role, Sara bridges global health approaches and engineering solutions to prevent deaths around the time of childbirth. Since 2016 she has studied and worked to address maternal mortality and morbidity due to postpartum hemorrhage. Prior to working with Equalize Health, Sara consulted for Alydia Health to advance their efforts in saving lives at birth due to excessive bleeding.
Sara holds a B.S. and an M.S. in Biomedical Engineering from California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo. Sara believes in the impact that educating our world’s problem solvers can have on improving health outcomes. In 2019 she began teaching a university Women’s Health course that she designed to be equity-based, human-centered, and interdisciplinary. These same principles are what drew her to Equalize Health.
Some of Sara’s other interests and hobbies include bicycle advocacy, intentional community building, and bicycle touring.
