Sarah Gray grew up in the city of Santa Marta in Colombia. She moved to the states in 2000 and lived in Florida and New Hampshire before coming to Texas. She has two bachelor’s degrees from Florida Atlantic University – one in political science and the other in international business and marketing.

She’s currently working on her masters in project management online through Boston University. Sarah is a research coordination specialist for a pharmaceutical development company here in Austin. She’s “addicted to reading” and really enjoys blogging about her life and writing zombie movie reviews.

She began volunteering with CASA of Travis County in the fall of 2012. She shared, “I want to make a difference in children’s lives, things I wish someone had done for me. I want to be there when they’re going through such a hard time in their life.”

Sarah feels that the children really need a lot of affection. “They don’t really know how to accept someone caring for or worrying about them,” she says, and she hopes to help change that.

Sarah feels a really strong commitment to the children she’s advocating for: “Anything I could do to make their lives better, I would do it.”
