Sarah Blenner

Sarah Blenner received her BA from Emory in 2007, with high honors in Jewish Studies, and went on to earn both a JD and a Master’s of Public Health. She currently works as the Director of Field Studies and Applied Professional Training for the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health. She chose to be a Jewish Studies major because of the interdisciplinary nature of the program, which provided the flexibility to look at topics through various lenses, including anthropology, religion, political science, and history. One of her most rewarding academic experiences was completing an honors thesis, advised by Prof. Michael Berger, and Blenner says the work she conducted on that thesis led to internships and applied practice experiences in her public health and law programs, which ultimately positioned her for a job following graduate school.
