Sarah Simpson

I love using language to support the issues that I care about. It’s a fun challenge to help write the words that advance the missions of organizations doing great work. I’m lucky that I get to go to work every single day with talented, passionate people who ask the hard question: "What can we do to make the world a better place today?" 

With passion and prowess in the world of nonprofits and advocacy organizations, Sarah began her communications career working as a grassroots political organizer. She excels at establishing local outreach efforts, driving small-donor fundraising campaigns and managing online presences in order to advance client missions. This often includes, but is not limited to, the crafting and coordination of social media strategies and aligned content, direct email campaigns and content strategies for websites.

Sarah has a BS in Journalism, with a focus in broadcast and new media, from Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism. She also holds an MPS in Political Management from the George Washington University Graduate School of Political Management.

Noteworthy Story or Next Adventure

I spent the summer after my freshman year of college in Thailand working at an animal rescue center where they rehabilitated monkeys that had been exploited for animal tourism. During the month-long trip, I spent a day at the elephant nature park, which rescues elephants that have been taken captive for tourism purposes. Spending the day petting, playing with and feeding such gentle, intelligent and emotional animals was life changing.
