Sarah Coffey '97

Sarah is currently a reporter covering business for Reuters news agency in New York, NY. After graduating from UMass Amherst she worked for the Community Newspaper Company in Marshfield, Massachusetts and did some radio work for WATD-FM, also in Marshfield. A short stint at the Massachusetts State House as communications director for the House Minority Leader convinced her to abandon public relations and return to journalism. She spent four years reporting for the Patriot Ledger in Quincy, Massachusetts, and then worked as a reporter first for United Press International and then for The Associated Press. She returned to school to earn her master's degree in journalism from American University in Washington, D.C., and then went to work for Reuters.
