Sarah Wright

Sarah Wright is an expert communicator who has worked at all levels of politics, from a global think tank to the halls of Capitol Hill and today, as a journalist covering hyperlocal politics and education for the Half Moon Bay Review. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Foreign Service from Georgetown University, focusing her studies on where international policy and communications intersect science and technology.

Most recently, Sarah worked in digital politics, writing and editing fundraising and engagement copy on behalf a wide range of clients — gun control advocacy groups, environmental organizations, and members of Congress — to help them carve out a distinct voice in the crowded digital space, boost engagement with their brand, and drive donations, all in the pursuit of social good.

Originally from Lake Tahoe, Sarah is passionate about being outdoors and advocating for environmental justice. She combines her education in international environmental and energy policy with her experience researching and writing for the Environmental Law Institute to bring an international lens to the local and global climate and conservation fights. And during the summer of 2019, Sarah hiked all 2,653 miles of the Pacific Crest Trail from Canada to Mexico.

Sarah is joining PCI to bring her policy background and eye for captivating and precise content to this innovation-driven team.
