Sarah Coffey is the Senior Editor at the Foundation for Government Accountability where she provides writing and editing support for internal and external policy needs. She also works closely with the Center for Excellence in Polling to create collateral and help translate polling results into compelling messages.
While at FGA, her work has been published in the Chicago Tribune, the Washington Times, Real Clear Politics, Real Clear Policy, Townhall, and the Missouri Times.
Sarah’s first exposure to public policy was working as an intern in the U.S. House of Representatives while in college. Before joining FGA, Sarah worked as a self-employed copywriter. She also worked for a time as a reference assistant for the Archdiocese of Saint Louis Archives. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in History with a minor in Early Modern & Medieval Studies from Lindenwood University.
Sarah first experienced the value of work while working at the barn she trained at, caring for horses, cleaning tack, mucking stalls, and prepping horses for competitions. It taught her that a job well done is rewarding, that work can be fulfilling, and that you can accomplish more when you don’t worry about who gets the credit. Sarah believes that when an individual has the liberty to reap the benefits of his or her labor, work is empowering—and this is more respectful of human dignity than telling someone they need the government to take care of them.
