Herzog Foundation
Training Director
Hi! I'm Sadie. I serve as the Training Director at the Herzog Foundation for Christian education. As a product of K-12 Christian education it is a joy to serve schools across the nation like the one that helped shaped my faith as a student.

I graduated with a B.A. degree in Politics, Philosophy, and Economics from The King's College, New York City. After college, I served for 2 years as a Development Associate at The Global Orphan Project, an international orphan care and prevention non-profit. While there I launched the organization's grants department and secured $1.4m+ in my first 18 months. Although the national average of grant approval is near 15-18% my team saw an acceptance rate of 45% because we knew the power of cultivating Kingdom-minded donor relationships! I then went on to serve as the Interim Development Director at Northland Christian Schools, my alma mater. Most recently prior to joining the team at the Foundation, I graduated with an MBA from ESCP Europe.

During my time in graduate school, I had the privilege to travel across Europe with some of my closest friends, and I love to visit them abroad regularly. I reside in Weston, MO - Missouri's most "Hallmarky" small town. The most precious title I hold is Aunt to my nieces Virginia Rae and Magnolia Anne.
