For more than 30 years, Sarah’s professional and personal interests have been at the intersection of technology and education.
During her 20-year tenure at Johns Hopkins University (1993-2013), as dean of Part-time Graduate Education in two different Schools of the University (Engineering and Arts and Science) she oversaw the programmatic, marketing and business strategies, as well as the development and implementation of more than a dozen fully online master’s degree programs reaching more than 5000 graduate students per year and generating total annual tuition revenues exceeding $50M.
In 2010, Sarah was named the Vice Provost for Student Affairs and subsequently the Executive Vice Provost of Johns Hopkins University, with responsibility for university-wide strategic initiatives, including online and continuing/professional education. Among many accomplishments during this time, Sarah chaired the Student Services Committee for Information Technology and was the Chair of the University Task Force on distance learning. Sarah was the lead on the initial Johns Hopkins University MOOC partnership with Coursera – now generating nearly $2M in annual revenue for the University.
Today, as the Founder and Principal Consultant of Frogstone Strategies LLC, Sarah leverages her extensive leadership experience in higher education to work with colleges and universities to achieve revenue growth and sustainability via pathways including online, continuing and professional education.
Sarah is a frequent presenter, writer, panelist, and moderator and she serves on several for-profit and non-profit education technology and workforce development advisory boards, including the National Education Initiative, the Workforce Solutions Group, ShalomLearning, and ChaseFuture.
