Fundraising Assistant, EMILY’s List
Sara is on a leadership fast track in political activism and fund-raising. Her interest in politics solidified as a student at Mount Holyoke College where she majored in Politics with a minor in History and International Relations. Before she graduated in 2004, Sara coordinated logistics, funding and publicity for Mount Holyoke’s Asian American Alumnae Conference, and co-chaired Mount Holyoke’s Asian American Sisters In Action conference.
Most recently, Sara was finance staffer for Democrat Joe Driscoll’s campaign for the U.S. Congress, in which $2.3 million was raised. She is currently a fundraising assistant for Washington, D.C.-based EMILY’s List, which has helped elect pro-choice Democratic women to office for 20 years.
