Sarah Wittmann joined the NICWA team in September 2015 as the event coordinator. She graduated Messiah College in 2008 with a bachelor of social work. Following graduation, she worked closely with international students as the intercultural programs coordinator at a liberal arts university in Lithuania. Afterwards, she moved to Montana to attend the University of Montana, where she studied intercultural youth and family development as part of the Masters International program. In conjunction with this, she served in the Peace Corps as a youth development specialist in Azerbaijan. In her two years of service, she focused on grassroots community development with young girls, women, and people with disabilities. Sarah is looking forward to putting all her cross-cultural studies, experience, and passions into practice in her new role at NICWA.
