Project Manager

Sarah Cayton is a Morgantown native and a graduate of West Virginia University. She earned a bachelors degree in Environmental Geoscience as well as a minor in Communications. Most recently Sarah was the Executive Director of Friends of Deckers Creek, a local non profit watershed group that is committed to the remediation of the Deckers Creek Watershed. She served FODC as an AmeriCorps VISTA and as the Water Remediation Project Manager before taking on the Executive Director position at FODC. Previously, she worked on a soil remediation project in Spelter, WV, cleaning up a community after contamination by a zinc smelting plant. Sarah is a member of the Morgantown Green Team, an advisory committee to the City of Morgantown, as well as a new board member to her previous employer FODC. She is very excited to be a part of the Water Research Institute and make an impact in her home community and across the state. In her spare time Sarah enjoys swimming, boating, biking, and hiking. Fitting to her new role at WRI, she enjoys pretty much any activity outside and around water! She also enjoys reading, game nights, and time spent with family and friends.
