Rev. Sara's Story

I've been at St. Luke's since March 2019. It's been a wild and sometimes challenging few years, and I wouldn't want to be anywhere else. 

My career path has been a winding one. Prior to coming to St. Luke’s, I served as a street chaplain to people who are unhoused in the Tenderloin and Mission neighborhoods of San Francisco. I also worked for several years in fundraising and communications for an organization that provides shelter, housing, and services to unhoused folks in Connecticut. Most recently, I managed communications at a large Presbyterian church.


I grew up in Casper, Wyoming, where most of my family still lives, and I spent many years in New Haven, a city I adore. I hold a B.A. in Journalism and Creative Writing from the University of Bridgeport in Connecticut as well as an M.Div. from Pacific School of Religion in Berkeley, California. I was ordained at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco in 2017.

I love to read (particularly science fiction and fantasy epics), write, and run. I’m also a geek for public transportation and far prefer MAX or bus to a car.
