Visitor Services Representative
Sara Knudson joined Susquehanna National Heritage Area in August of 2019 as a Boat Tour Docent and is now a Visitors Service Representative at the Zimmerman Center for Heritage. She welcomes visitors to the Zimmerman Center and leads house tours of the Historic 1750 home built by John Meirs. She also uses her many years of experience as a floral designer to add holiday decor to the Zimmerman house in ways that emphasize the use of natural non-synthetic natural elements of the Susquehanna Riverlands. Her Bachelor of Art degree is in American History and her minor in theatre coaching has informed many of the skill sets she uses in public speaking, curriculum planning, event planning, and set design.
Sara and her family moved to York in 1996 and four of her six children have been born in York County. Sara is a NASM certified personal trainer, trained in grant writing, and has many interests she actively pursues including studying and teaching karate at Red Lion Karate as a Nidan in karate and kobudo. Her hike to the top station of Mt. Fugi in the summer of 2019 reignited a child-hood love of hiking and she has enjoyed getting to know many places on the Mason-Dixon trail that parallels the Zimmerman Center for Heritage. Sara and her two sons live in Red Lion, Pennsylvania.
