Sara Eckhoff, Community Engagement and Training Manager
Sara Eckhoff is the community engagement and training manager at the Rhode Island Coalition Against Domestic Violence, where she works to build and deepen the RICADV’s connections across the community. Sara joined the RICADV team in 2019 as law enforcement training coordinator, a position which she held for 3 years before transitioning to her current role. Prior to the RICADV, she worked directly with folks experiencing domestic and sexual violence, first as a law enforcement advocate and then as advocacy coordinator at a sexual assault and trauma resource center located in Providence. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in History from the University of Rhode Island and a Master of Arts in Holocaust and Genocide Studies from West Chester University of Pennsylvania. Sara is a daughter, sister, aunt, niece, cousin, partner, and friend. Although she’s a Rhode Islander at heart, she currently lives in Connecticut with her beloved pets—a cat named Sugar and a Box Turtle named Shelby. She finds joy in creativity, caring for her many plants, pizza nights with her partner, thrifting, discussions about fat liberation, sipping iced lattes, looking at the moon, and spending warm summer days by the water.
