Sarah Dulin, Treasurer

Sarah Dulin, Treasurer

Major: Associates Degree of Nursing

Sarah wants to bring babies into the world. She believes that the people who assist mothers with childbirth -- nurses, midwives, doulas and doctors -- can make these experiences inspiring, empowering and life-changing. It all started with a surprise home birth in 2006 with child #2, during which she gave birth in the bathroom of her Houston home with her husband assisting. On that day, Sarah decided that she would go into nursing, and, ultimately, into midwifery. She enrolled in Lone Star College's nursing program at the beginning of 2017. A closet accountant with the heart of a volunteer, she is excited to take on the role of treasurer for the SNA. When not studying or working on SNA events, she enjoys time with family, running and good food.
