Prior to founding Somadome, Sarah studied Rhetoric at UC Berkeley and went on to teach high school in Crenshaw while spending her summers as an international travel writer for Random House. After studying toward her Master’s in International Affairs at The New School in New York City, she decided to become an attorney, and attended The University of the Pacific, McGeorge School of Law. Her focus was criminal law, and she was appointed to Governors Schwarzenegger and Brown’s Administrations concerning indeterminately-sentenced inmates’ parole status. Throughout 37 countries, having lived in India, Italy and Israel, and observed many of our world’s cultures – Sarah has learned that the only common thread comes from within – from the self. This thread connects all, and transcends language and religion.
