Sarah Bird

Recruitment Coordinator

Sarah Bird

Sarah Bird is a born and raised Hoosier but spent the last ten years in Memphis and Knoxville, Tennessee. She recently returned to her Indiana roots to be closer to family while also pursuing a career. During her time studying at Purdue University, she was offered the opportunity to work in events with the Alumni Relations and Development departments of the College of Liberal Arts. She put her career on hold to start a family and is currently a proud mama to two boys, Isaiah and Mason.

Sarah has a passion for events and loves the organization and details associated with the planning and execution of them. She is excited to begin her new role as the On-Campus Events and Recruitment Coordinator and looks forward to watching events come to fruition while also building relationships with employers, faculty, staff, and students.

Sarah loves ethnic food; her favorite is Mediterranean. She loves to read, sing, spend time outside, try new restaurants, and spend time with family and friends.

What did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be a pediatric cardiologist. I suffered from a heart condition for most of my childhood and my pediatric cardiologist touched my heart (literally and figuratively.) In reality, college science classes changed my mind and I chose to pursue education in the communications field instead and have not been disappointed with that decision.
