Sara joined JWRP in August 2015 as the administrative assistant. She graduated with honors from the University of Maryland with a Bachelors degree in Early Childhood Education. Sara previously was a first grade teacher at Fallsmead Elementary School in Rockville. She also started and owned The Yellow Balloon Children’s Hair Salon in Gaithersburg. Since selling her business in 2006 Sara has stayed home to raise her three children Kiran, Maya and Zain. During that time she spent many hours volunteering at her children’s schools. Whether it was running the parent committee, organizing school parties or heading a large school wide silent auction she stayed busy. She is very excited to be back in the workforce.
