Sara Acevedo, BA

Program Support Specialist

Sara has called Austin home for the last four years. She thrives working in diverse settings which has led her to live and work in seven different countries. However Austin has a special spot in her heart, as it is her son’s hometown. Over the course of her career, she has pursued experience in community outreach, youth development, education, and social work. She has learned the importance and power of engaging the community to generate social change. The relationships she has developed with the community are a key source of motivation and personal growth. For that reason, she looks forward to connecting with families going through the transformative experience that is welcoming a newborn. Academically, she has also learned a lot as an undergrad in sociology at the University of Puerto Rico-Rio Piedras and graduate student in social work at the University of Texas-Austin. During her free time, she enjoys exploring restaurants, art events, and walking around her neighborhood with her family.
