Sarah Evans, MS’13

  • Director of Development and Communications, The Birth Center

Sarah has recently joined the leadership team of The Birth Center, a midwifery-led out-of-hospital birthing center, as the Director of Development and Communications. The Birth Center (TBC) was the first licensed birth center in Pennsylvania and is one of the oldest continually operating freestanding birth centers in the United States. Prior to joining TBC, Sarah was a Major Gifts Officer for Penn Medicine at The University of Pennsylvania.

In her new role, Sarah oversees & implements all fundraising and marketing initiatives for TBC. This includes social media communications, email marketing & solicitations, campaign management, and donor cultivation.

Sarah enjoys lovely spring days, listening to live music, and learning languages. Nowadays, she spends much of her free time going on outings with her husband and their baby daughter, Lucy.

“The NPL program was the perfect program for me at the right time. I was looking for an advanced degree that emphasized soft skills as much as hard skills–which the NPL program balanced masterfully. The NPL program enhanced who I am as a professional through instruction and through the rich network of like-minded colleagues and professors throughout the region, and beyond. I continue to reap the benefits from the NPL program, and expect to continue to take advantage of the resources afforded me by being an SP2 alumna.”
