Sarah M. Peters joins the Bellamy Genn Group with a government relations focus on transportation, infrastructure, and women’s issues, including access to healthcare.
Since November 2015, Sarah worked as the Legislative Manager in the Maryland Department of Transportation, Maryland Transit Administration (MDOT MTA) Office of Governmental Affairs under Maryland Governor Hogan working and advocating for departmental priorities. With key relationships and a vast knowledge of policy and the law, in 2017, Sarah successfully advocated for MDOT MTA’s departmental bill, which passed unanimously in the Maryland House and Senate to allow MDOT MTA to contract with taxicab companies for its Mobility service.
At Bellamy Genn, Sarah also works with clients to develop successful outreach strategies to educate, update, and seek input from stakeholders on projects and legislative matters. From 2016 to 2017, Sarah developed and implemented a successful and robust outreach strategy educating Maryland elected officials and their constituents on MDOT MTA’s BaltimoreLink project, a multi-phase redesigning of the local bus system throughout the Baltimore region. Sarah has also provided insight on a number of transportation projects across Maryland, including the Purple Line Light Rail project, the largest public private partnership in the country.
Recognizing that outreach strategies are only as successful as its reach, Sarah continues to work with officials from the Administration as well as key local, state, and federal elected officials on a number of client priorities, including procurement opportunities.
Prior to joining the Bellamy Genn Group, Sarah worked in both, the private and public sectors interning for Maryland Congressman Dutch Ruppersberger, the Governor’s Office of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing, numerous law firms, and more recently, government relations firms, including The Ingram Group in Washington, D.C. and Englander Knabe and Allen in Los Angeles, California.
Raised in Maryland, Sarah received a B.A. from the American University and a J.D. from the University of Baltimore School of Law.
