Sabrina strongly believes that lasting systemic change is driven by policy, and that it is paramount for policies to be inclusive and data-informed in order for them to have a positive impact. Her passion was sparked while interning at Clark County Child Advocacy Center (CAC). During her time at the CAC, she was inspired by those around her who, no matter the obstacles or circumstances, always fought to protect the rights of children and ensure their best interests were served. That experience highlighted strengths and flaws within the systems that children, families, and communities rely on for support. From there, Sabrina knew she wanted to be involved with advocacy at the macro level.
Sabrina joined the ACLU of Ohio as a Policy Strategist in March of 2020. Being from the suburbs of Cleveland, she is beyond thrilled to be actively involved in cultivating change in her home state. In this capacity, Sabrina will work to advance ACLU’s mission through research and policy analysis, partnerships, and advocacy efforts.
Prior to the ACLU of Ohio, Sabrina worked at the Council on Accreditation (COA) in New York City in a variety of roles since 2012, all of which focused on partnering with human and social service providers to implement best practices. She also served as a Policy Analyst at the Institute for Children, Poverty, and Homelessness (ICPH). Sabrina received a B.A. in Psychology from Wittenberg University and a M.S. in Family Studies with a specialization in Child Advocacy and Family Policy from the University of New Hampshire.
Outside of the office, Sabrina can be found strolling the Cleveland Metroparks, listening to live music, or supporting local animal shelters/rescue groups. She is a lover of good coffee and the Golden Girls.
