Sara is the Community Outreach and Gallery coordinator for the Elk County Council on the Arts (ECCOTA). She has been involved with ECCOTA in varying degrees since childhood, volunteering and participating with programs and events. After moving back to Ridgway in 2008 she was asked to join the board of directors and was soon after elected President where she remained until being hired as a staff member in early 2016.
As a graduate of Lock Haven University with a degree in Communication Media concentrating in advertising and public relations, and a studio art minor, Sara brings years of experience in event promotion, marketing and advertising, working with non-profit organizations and small business owners, and a love for the arts.
Sara and her husband Matthew can often be found hiking around the woods in Elk County with their rescue mutt or camping in one of Pennsylvania’s state parks. They’re both patrons of the arts in and around Elk County.
