Girls on the Run Welcomes New Staff Member

Girls on the Run of Central Illinois is excited to welcome Sarah Brust as Office Administrator. In her role as Office Administrator, Sarah will be managing the finance, administrative, IT, and facilities functions at Girls on the Run.  She received her Bachelors in Business Administration with a minor in Accountancy at the University of Illinois Springfield where she worked in a similar role at the Sangamon Auditorium. Before returning to school to receive her degree, Sarah was a preschool teacher for five years in Springfield. At Lake Shore Learning Center, she taught and cared for children ages six weeks to twelve years old in the areas of physical, emotional, and social development through lessons geared at physical activity, team building, and personal empowerment.

Although she doesn’t label herself a runner, Sarah runs on her treadmill three mornings a week (she laughs that no one needs to see that) in order to push herself physically. She does love walks with her two beagle-mixes every evening and takes them on a trail walk every Sunday where they can sniff to their hearts’ content while she enjoys the surroundings. Being active helps her perform her best, and she is excited to have the opportunity to do her best to support the staff here at Girls on the Run in the amazing work they do with young girls!
