Sarah Thompson
Senior Director, Marketing and Communications

Sarah is responsible for leading communications and marketing strategies that support Village initiatives, strengthen The Village brand and increase awareness of The Village’s programs.

“I see each day as a fresh opportunity to reach people and improve communities through marketing and communications. While the landscape of new and traditional media continually shifts, one thing will hold steady through it all—people matter. And with that truth at the forefront of my focus, challenges become opportunities and lives are changed,” she says.

Prior to joining The Village, Sarah spent twenty years working in agency, media and youth and family-centered non-profit organizations. She provided key influence for increasing engagement and inspiring action, and acquired a deep breadth of knowledge that spans the marketing and communications spectrum.

“I have a deep commitment to connecting and empowering people, fostering community and championing for those who need it most.”

She has received awards from the Florida Press Association, American Graphic Design Awards and Constant Contact for her work in advertising, website design and digital marketing.

Sarah earned her bachelor’s degree from Massachusetts College of Art and Design.
