Sarah Ripple is the Database Consultant at Kuban & Co. and brings with her a wealth of expertise in database management.
Sarah Ripple has worked and volunteered in the Non-Profit sector for over 6 years. She has a natural talent for data organization. After being a database manager for several years in a medium size organization helping women in trafficking, she realized the great need for good database practices to accomplish effective and efficient donor development. Often this is an area of neglect until it becomes a hindrance for the organization. It is her desire to offer her skill set to organizations looking to start off on the right foot or to revamp a failing system so that each organization can do what they do best even better and with less time!
Sarah lives in Texas with her husband and two daughters. Jesus is Lord of her life and her family is her first priority. She loves having the opportunity to share the gifts and talents God has given her with clients of Kuban & Co.
