Sarah Utley is our Lead Advocate for Farhio House. Sarah has been working with victims and survivors of domestic and sexual violence, stalking, harassment and human trafficking at the state and local level since 2008 in both Wisconsin and Minnesota. She has done international women's empowerment work on a US State Department sponsored project in Sindh Pakistan. This work specifically has fueled her passion for working in women's empowerment on international projects as well as with immigrant women and their children here in the US in our local communities. She has a B.S. in Community Health Education from the University of Wisconsin and is working towards a Masters in International Development. Her passion and dedication for working towards the advancement of women, especially those who are most marginalized by systems of oppression within our communities is what inspires her in this work. She is incredibly grateful for the opportunity to work with Farhio House and those that we serve.
