Sarah Green joined Team LSI earlier this summer as our new Vice President of Philanthropy and Church Relations. She has a heart for this work, and is truly dedicated to LSI’s mission of providing hope and healing to so many of our neighbors.
She comes to LSI from Blessman International, where she worked as the Director of U.S. Development. Blessman serves communities in Limpopo, South Africa, and Sarah was responsible for expanding Blessman’s philanthropy efforts, as well as leading eight trips to South Africa. She also has experience working at Children’s Cancer Connection, managing statewide volunteers and fundraising events.
After earning her undergraduate degree from the University of Northern Iowa, Sarah completed her Master’s in Public Administration with a focus in Executive Leadership from Drake University, where she developed a passion for multiculturalism and global diversity.
“My professional experiences have been focused on global initiatives, but I have always been interested in serving directly in my community. I was inspired to become part of LSI and ‘come home’ to the state of Iowa to make an impact,” Sarah says. “I have been inspired by the hundreds of dedicated employees at LSI providing life-changing services, and I am humbled to be part of the team.”
