Hi, I’m Sarah.
One of my favorite things to do is travel. When I first arrive at a destination, I do two things in order to immerse myself in the culture: I go for a run, and I go grocery shopping.
I have found this to be an effective way to quickly become acquainted with local people, their environment, and their everyday choices.
This curiosity is a natural theme for me. I have a background in marketing, sociology, & economics and I enjoy combining these interests to better understand consumer culture and the role it plays in society.
I’m a PhD student at the University of Arkansas studying under the gracious direction of Jeff Murray.
My research interests include global consumer cultures, social acceleration, and sustainable development.
Upon graduation, I am seeking a role that will allow me to engage these interests while maintaining dialogue with future business leaders, policy makers, and global citizens in a university setting.
