Sarah Molbert, MScN, is an adjunct faculty member at Portland Community College. She is originally from the southern part of Louisiana and moved to Portland four years ago to pursue a Master of Science in Nutrition and a Master of Science in Global Health from the National University of Natural Medicine.
Sarah teaches the Personal Nutrition elective and Nutrition through the Childbearing Years with PCC IHP's Functional Nutrition program.
Prior to moving to Portland, Sarah spent seven years working in the fields of finance and accounting in both for profit and not-for profit organizations. In pivoting her career four years ago to focus on nutrition and global health, she now focuses her time on educating students on the aspects of personal nutrition and providing hospitality and nourishment for her colleagues in the non-profit sector. Sarah is especially drawn to nutrition through the childbearing years and through childhood (ages 0 to 5), as she believes these are the most formative and foundational years of an individual’s life. Sarah has a deep commitment to maternal and child health, public service, creating equitable systems that support vulnerable populations in low resource settings, and ensuring communities have access to proper nutrition and nourishment.
She is currently the Hospitality Coordinator at The Contingent, a venture non-profit focused on sparking initiatives to empower leaders and mobilize community for the common good. Outside of work, Sarah loves to read, have coffee over a meaningful conversation, rock climb, host friends for dinner and get outside in the beautiful PNW!
