Introducing our Team
This fall we'd like to introduce the FIRST Chesapeake staff to you. Although you've seen them at events, or received emailed from them, you may not have put a face with that name!
Our Community Engagement and Volunteer Manager is Sarah Gagnon She works closely with both FIRST and FIRST Chesapeake's Development team to recruit and train volunteers and will be creating a road-map for future volunteer engagement in the FIRST Chesapeake District. She also assists Kristin Clemons with the FTC Season as the FTC Coordinator. 

Sarah comes to FIRST Chesapeake with experience in sales, customer service and logistics. She received her undergraduate degree in Biology from Old Dominion University and her MBA from VA Commonwealth University. 

Sarah, and her husband, Jason, have two children who are both on FIRST teams. Sarah is also a coach/mentor for an FLL JR and FLL team. The Gagnon family recently adopted a puppy, who will hopefully have a name before the season starts. Fun fact: their favorite place is Walt Disney World.

In her spare time, Sarah loves to read. She is always looking for that next great read, so feel free to share suggestions the next time you see her.
