Love Modesto Event Coordinator

Sarah is the Event Coordinator for both Love Modesto and Love Our Cities. She started her journey with this non-profit organization in 2017 after concluding a contract coordinating for the non-profit organization World Relief. In her time with the organization, Sarah has successfully delivered yearly community-wide volunteer days known as Love Modesto and golf tournaments to fundraise for Love Our Cities. Sarah believes in the power of loving where you live and recognizing this is YOUR CHOICE!

Sarah was born and raised in Modesto, CA. After high school she attended California State University, Fresno where she received a BS in Commercial Recreation with a certificate in Special Event Coordinating. Post college Sarah performed as the Gym Director for the franchise The Little Gym and eventually left her love and passion for children to pursue coordinating private events. She served as an Event Sales Representative and Coordinator for the venue Vista Ranch and Cellars in Merced, CA for a little over three years. Nothing gave her more pleasure than being a part of a couples wedding! And eventually she coordinated her own wedding when she married her husband, Kion. Kion and Sarah have two beautiful children, Naia and Nevin. Besides raising her children, Sarah is involved in BSF, an avid Peloton rider and OTF member, loves to travel and eat her way through life!
