Sarah Miller


(Administration & Development)

Sarah has a background in sociology, organizational development, the healing arts and sustainable communities.  She has worked for over 18 years in capacities related to community building including human wellbeing, local food and agriculture and social justice.


Sarah's interests, passions and skills all lend themselves to her current role at Bridging the Gap which she has held since spring of 2017. She relies heavily on systems thinking and the strong belief that the best solutions arise out of the distillation of many voices. Sarah works to incorporate the same values that guide BTG into her personal life: respect, dignity, empowerment and community engagement. 


When she is not at work, you might find her writing poetry, eating Indian food, taking a hike or spending time with her family in Massachusetts.
