[ARCHIVED] Nevada County Intern Spotlight: Sarah Holyhead

Intern Spotlight 10-23

The Human Resources Office administers a vibrant, made-to-order internship program designed to provide learning and experience opportunities for individuals in the community, high school and college students, and members of the military community. We attempt to ignite interest in public sector careers by providing meaningful internship experiences. If you have an interest area you would like to gain experience in, reach out to us and we can attempt to match you to an internship opportunity

Sarah has a master’s degree in public affairs from UT Austin, and has spent her career in various aspects of public policy. She began as a legislative aide to a Texas state representative, then went on to helping put together public-private partnerships with Ernst & Young’s Real Estate Advisory Services group in Washington, D.C. Most recently, she fundraised for a non-profit lobbying organization. Sarah is seeking a position where she can leverage her analytical skills, her project management experience, and perform research and analysis on a variety of subjects such as legislative and policy and financial analysis while utilizing direct and professional communication. Sarah is deadline-oriented but also understands the need to be agile and flexible to accommodate changing priorities.

Sarah has been working as Legislative/Program Coordinator Assistant in the Clerk of the Board’s office since late August 2020 under the direction of Senior Management Analyst Jeffrey Thorsby. By leveraging her skillset, she has performed duties ranging from legislative research and analysis to drafting letters of advocacy on legislation. She has also been supporting the South Yuba River Public Safety Cohort, including organizing a virtual Town Hall event, developing a policy report with recommendations on public safety at the South Yuba River, coordinating work group discussions on timely issues, and working on special projects with valuable community stakeholders such as the restoration of Independence Trail.
