Sarah Thornbrugh

Community Engagement Manager

Sarah is the Community Engagement Manager for GreenLatinos, where she contributes to systems and projects that connect people and communities to resources that amplify their voices and win their fight for environmental freedom. She holds a M.S. in Free-Choice Science Education from Oregon State University, a B.S. in Environmental Science from the University of Florida, and is currently pursuing an M.S. in Ecological Restoration from the University of Florida. Sarah is a thoughtful and inclusive communicator that is dedicated to working for equitable access and representation conservation and environmental action.

Sarah is proud to have been raised in a multicultural home that reflects the Hispanic and New Mexican culture and heritage of her mother and ancestors, and the European ancestry of her father. While the majority of her family remains in northern New Mexico, she was born in the northeast and raised in the southeast parts of the US. She now lives on the homelands of the Wampanoag people in eastern Massachusetts with her husband and daughter who are citizens of the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe. Sarah represents one of many multicultural identities within Latinidad and continues to work to learn how to best leverage all of herself to the service of our comunidades y familias for equitable access to and powerful representation for clean air, safe water, and inclusive climate solutions.
