Who We Are

Sarah is a museum professional, early childhood educator and Mom in Northern Virginia.  She has degrees in History, Child Development and a MAT in Museum Education from The George Washington University

She has consulted at a variety of museums including the National Museum of American History, LBJ Presidential Library and Museum, the Sewell-Belmont House, the International Spy Museum and the National Building Museum.  During that time she designed and ran public programs, led tours, wrote curriculum and assisted with the exhibit design process with a focus on education through interactive content.

She has also worked for over 10 years as a classroom teacher with 3-5 year olds. Initially at Smithsonian Early Enrichment Center, a museum-lab school that emphasizes object-based learning, and currently at FB Meekins Cooperative Preschool.

Working with children from 3-5 years old, Sarah became fascinated with young children as museum visitors and how to combine the best practices of early childhood education with the unique attributes of a museum.  Cabinet of Curiosities LLC is the result of that interest.
