Sarah Robinson joined The River Guild team in April of this year and it's been an easy transition for her to make. Whether assisting Brooklyn in daily operations as well as coordinating teaching schedules and the Guild's web presence, Sarah has felt right at home with her new position.

"I have been a huge fan of The River Guild ever since Kate [Hartwell] opened the doors a year ago. I'm so grateful for the opportunity to help this community flourish."

Sarah's previous career experience includes journalism, marketing and sales, project management and event coordination. Her hope is that these skills will aid in making The River Guild a more accessible place for the entire Concord community, whatever their needs may be.

If you're interested in any of the offerings the Guild has available- maybe you want to offer your own workshop or regular class- or perhaps you want to rent the space for a special occasion, Sarah can help you through the process of becoming a part of the River Guild Family. She looks forward to hearing from you!

You can reach Sarah or Brooklyn at The River Guild every weekday from 9am to 3pm.
