URI North America Staff & Volunteers

Sari Heidenreich
Regional Coordinator 

Sari joined the URI team in October 2014 as the Regional Coordinator for North America, bringing with her a background of cross-cultural living and working. She spent middle and high school in Ghana, West Africa, where her parents worked with a network of churches. As an adult, she spent time living, traveling and working in Middle East, including a year-long stint in Jerusalem. This immersion gave her the life-changing experience of entering into the worlds of people from different backgrounds and finding common ground with them. Sari absolutely loves connecting with people and sharing their stories, a set of skills she is excited to apply to her work at URI.

You can reach Sari by calling (415) 762-2713 or emailing sari@uri.org.
