Graduate Research Associate, MES Program
The Evergreen State College
Sarah Weber is a graduate student in the Masters of Environmental Studies program at The Evergreen State College. Sarah received her BA from The University of North Texas and taught environmental education to preschool through 8th grade before heading to the Pacific Northwest to obtain her Masters degree. As a research associate for the Sustainability in Prisons Project, Sarah is coordinator of the Oregon spotted frog program at Cedar Creek Corrections Center. This program speaks to her desire to work in a scientific, conservation-minded community, while continuing the critical objective of providing environmental education to individuals both in and outside of prison walls. Sarah structured her degree with a focus on environmental education, sustainability, and conservation. This past spring, she earned a Sustainable Enterprise Certificate from Willamette Business School and completed an internship with the National Wildlife Federation. In her free time, Sarah enjoys hikes with her husband and dog, going to the beach, and soaking up sunshine. Sarah is thrilled to be involved with SPP and wrote her thesis on education and outreach benefits for inmate populations.
