Programs and Services Administrative Officer
Sarah Specht joined Epilepsy Foundation New England in July 2018 as the Camp Administrator and the Central & Western Massachusetts Field Service Manager. Sarah has a Bachelor in Science of Criminal Justice and had planned to attend the Police Academy when her son Hunter was diagnosed with Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome shortly after his third birthday. As challenging as life can be raising a child with epilepsy, Sarah believes that her son Hunter’s diagnosis has helped her be a better person. Sarah and Hunter first got involved with the Epilepsy Foundation New England at the Family Camp. “It was the first time I felt that I did not have to hide my son’s seizures or his side effects from medications. Hunter was accepted for who he was regardless.” She has fundraised for a service dog through 4 Paws for Ability and Hunter received Angel in December of 2014. They enjoy going on road trips and walks on the beach. Sarah is very excited to establish connections and provide support for people and families living with epilepsy.
