MEET OUR WRITERS
Sara has had a rich and diverse writing career, and she is overjoyed to be contributing to The Concerned Kids as a scriptwriter and blogger. Sara began her journey with TKC in 2010 as a volunteer puppeteer where she fell in love with the idea of sending positive messages to school-age children through the approachable medium of puppets.
