Sarah Gabel

Sarah Gabel is the Program Director of Girls on the Run of Northwest Ohio.  Sarah earned a BS in Early Education from Bowling Green State University.  Sarah started her teaching career at The Wellington School in Columbus, Ohio before she and her husband, Brandon, moved to Chicago, Illinois and she began teaching at Alphonsus Academy and Center for the Arts in Kindergarten.  Brandon and Sarah have welcomed two daughters into the world, and can’t wait for the day that Cheaney and Tenley can participate in Girls on the Run!  The Gabel family moved back to Ohio in 2010 to be closer to family.  Sarah was introduced to Girls on the Run in Chicago and served as a coach at the school where she was teaching.  Watching the girls complete the program each season showed her what a difference Girls on the Run can make in a young girl’s life.  The girls’ sense of self and confidence grew with each season and Sarah knew she had to be involved in the opportunity to bring this program to the girls of Northwest Ohio!
