Sarah has worked in site selection and economic development her entire career. Her first experience was a three-year internship with the South Carolina Department of Commerce's (SCDOC) Coordinating Council for Economic Development, the incentive granting entity for the state.  She then joined McCallum Sweeney Consulting for 10 years to advise corporations on their location strategy.  Her experience included conducting property evaluations, workforce analysis, and incentive negotiations in the industry sectors of manufacturing, distribution, and office headquarters. Prior to joining GLS in 2019, Sarah was Director at Quest Site Solutions, a spin-off of McCallum Sweeney, where she facilitated site selection services for industrial clients as well as provided economic development consulting services.  

Sarah enjoys matching corporations with communities, to facilitate mutual success.  Her site selection efforts have taken her across hundreds of locations across the United States, with her projects investing hundreds of millions of dollars and creating thousands of jobs.  Corporate clients have included the likes of Freshpet, Walmart, Dollar General, Hertz, and numerous others.

In addition to site selection consulting, Sarah also serves communities by helping them better prepare for today's competitive economic climate.  Her economic development consulting experience has largely centered on site readiness / property preparedness.  Previous economic development clients have included organizations such as Duke Energy, TVA, Cleco, SCDOC, and the Iowa Economic Development Authority.

Sarah is a graduate of the Darla Moore School of Business at the University of South Carolina and cheers on the Gamecocks. She and her husband, David, have two young children that keep them on their toes. In her free time, she enjoys traveling for fun and visits to their family farm.
