Sarah is the admissions counselor for the Master of Business Administration, Master of Education, Associate of Science in Business, and the on-campus Bachelor of Business Administration and MBA programs in Roanoke.
Welcome to the Averett Family! I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Communications from Virginia Tech (where I was the first–ever 4-year letter winner on the university’s first–ever varsity softball team!) Upon earning my undergrad degree, I went on to earn my MBA through the GPS program here at Averett University. I work at our campus at the Roanoke Higher Education Center, and have been enrolling students for 9 years. My previous experience includes launching and running an EBay company, inspiring and helping others achieve their physical goals as a Certified Personal Trainer, marketing sports events, and coaching at the collegiate level. While I enjoyed my previous jobs, none of them was ever as fulfilling as my role at Averett.
Helping my students is my passion, and I take great pride in what I do. Every day I come to work I look forward to giving my students motivational pep talks, answering their questions, preparing them for class, or solving a problem. Rest assured you are in good, capable, organized hands when I am involved!
