Name: Sarah Diamond
Job title: Academic Program Coordinator
Job duties: Faculty support for all MBA programs and administrative/programming support for part-time and accelerated MBA programs.
Time at GW: One year.
Best part of working at GWSB: One of my favorite parts about working in the MBA office is the opportunity to interact with students and faculty members. I love getting to know new people, and I try to learn something from everybody I meet. I also really appreciate the positive work environment in my office, and I especially enjoy the constant flow of food!
What co-workers do not know about me: When I was in high school, I rode my bicycle from Boston to Orlando, Fla. It took about four weeks.
Family: My partner, Joshua, is a desk officer for Central America in the Peace Corps. I have a grandmother in Virginia, and the rest of my family lives in Tucson, Ariz.
Favorite things to do on the weekend: Sailing, swimming (I am a member of a master’s swim team), reading every book I can get my hands on and bike riding.
Favorite vacation spots: Costa Rica and Ecuador.
Favorite book: I really enjoyed Life of Pi, and I recently read The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time, which was fantastic. My all-time favorite is the Harry Potter series.
