Sage’s interest in Behavioral Health began while pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Community Psychology from the University of Washington. Post-graduation, he had the privilege of contributing to a YMCA project to organize a coalition of North Seattle service providers, creating infrastructure and a collective voice for those organizations.

Sage moved to Sacramento in 2017 to direct non-profit fundraising campaigns supporting advocacy organizations such as the ACLU and the SPLC. In 2018, he left Sacramento briefly to work with the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee during the midterm elections. When he returned, Sage further honed his communications and public relations skills as the Communications & Outreach Liaison for the California Cannabis Industry Association.

Recently, he became a member of the Sacramento Hub of Global Shapers, a coalition of millennials spanning 171 countries with the mission to drive community improvement projects. Sage likes to contribute and advocate for local community change in his spare time and is known for his love of everything food, music, and dancing.
