Sarah is an attorney advocate for children and adults with mental and physical disabilities.  She has seen the struggles many New Mexicans face in accessing quality health care, especially for those with mental illness. She believes New Mexico needs to do a better job in providing greater access to behavioral health providers and will work to address this shortfall.  As your State Representative, Sarah has supported initiatives to provide services to those with disabilities including the implementation of the Elder & Disability Court Initiative for the Second Judicial District Court. She has also supported programs geared to keep our skilled medical providers in New Mexico, like UNM’s BA/MD Degree Program, which was designed to educate New Mexican students who are committed to practicing medicine in communities throughout the state.
