Student Council Member Nominees
Growing up, my strengths in science, technology, arts and data analysis led to post-graduate work, becoming a published author and illustrator, and an US federal government career. Now that I am retired, I’ve come back to the church and the understanding and comfort it provides me. My sense of my vocational call includes an intense desire to help and to serve God and others. I am a working single mother pursuing a WTS MDiv degree with a focus on the Arts. I have a strong sense of belonging in the United Methodist Church (Virginia conference). I excel at “shepherding my flock” and feel a sense of disdain about myself if I am not caring and looking after others in my church congregation or social groups. I’ve suffered, endured and survived through chronic lyme disease and severe car accidents. Remember, Kristi Fites is for your Rights! Vote for me!
My name is Sara Sadler and I'm a first year M. Div student here. I grew up in the Presbyterian Church and graduated with a BA in religion from Shenandoah University. I am married to a wonderful man named Tom and we live in Merrifield, VA with our 2 dogs. Social justice advocacy is my passion! I grew up here in the DC area and absolutely love living here. I'm a member of Leesburg Presbyterian Church. I have an older sister and brother in law who live in Illinois and my mom lives in Gaithersburg, MD. I'm excited to be at Wesley because God called me to be part of this community and to grow in my faith here! I'm very happy to be part of the Student Council here as well!
