    Sarah Baron’s CV

    Profile

    I am an independent and self-motivated first year Graduate Student with interests in criminal justice, social work, government, and public policy. In my undergraduate studies I majored in Human Development and minored in Sociology, with a focus on Criminal Justice. I finished my undergrad with an overall 3.65 GPA while competing as a tennis player for Virginia Tech’s Women’s Tennis Program (previously attended and played for Indiana University). I am now studying to get my Masters in Public Administration and Policy. Managing both my coursework and athletic responsibilities at a high level has equipped me with skills such as great time management, becoming a better and more actively involved team player, leadership skills, and self-discipline.
