New KLT Board Member Takes on Fundraising Effort


Originally from Binghamton, NY, Sarah Brainard has lived in the Hudson Valley for roughly 15 years. A graduate of SUNY New Paltz, Ms. Brainard brings expertise in Graphic Design and a history of board service to the Kingston Land Trust’s Board of Directors. As one of our most recent additions, Sarah is excited to be re-joining her former New Paltz colleagues in a professional format, having worked at the School of Fine and Performing Arts with Tim Weidemann and David Cavallaro while she was a student.

Sarah currently works as Director of Client Relations for BlueMark, LLC, a New Paltz-based Software Company that specializes in healthcare technology. Sarah has been with BlueMark for 12 years while also maintaining her own freelance clients. She has also offered her talents pro bono to a number of organizations providing design assistance and serving as a Board Member for the Catskill Ballet Theatre over a period of 7 years and is currently on the Hudson Valley Chapter of the Healthcare Finance Management Association (HFMA) Board of Directors where she serves as the Communications Co-Chair.

Sarah lives in Rosendale and is excited to be on the Kingston Land Trust Board of Directors as she feels drawn to the area and is happy to have more opportunity to be involved with the community. She is serving as co-chair on the Fundraising Committee and was part of the team responsible for organizing the, “Gather” event at the Anchor this past January and promises there will be more events to come! She also hopes to, in time, play a role in helping the KLT achieve its goal of gaining accreditation through the Land Trust Alliance.

Sarah has also recently designed the logo for Lost Pets of the Hudson Valley! An animal lover, Sarah is often busy with her two dogs, Maggie and Petey and two laying hens, Gertie and Tator. She is presently helping a neighbor care for her hatchlings so there may be more chicks on the way!
