Sarah C. Gale
Dallas/Fort Worth Development Director
How long have you been with GallantFew?
I joined GallantFew in July of 2021.
Where were you born and raised?
I was born in Louisville, KY, lived in Indiana for a few years, moved back to Kentucky for a year, then moved to Texas in 1992. I am a graduate of Texas Christian University.
What is your connection to the military?
I am a civilian patriot and my step-father was a U.S. Army Vietnam Veteran. He sadly passed away from complications due to Parkinson’s Disease with Dementia (caused by Agent Orange) this past February 2021. As a former middle school social studies teacher, I had the honor of accompanying a WWII Veteran to Washington D.C., in 2011, on a Freedom Flight. My love and respect grew exponentially for our active duty and our veterans that day and also as my step-dad fought his disease. I have close friends and other family members who have proudly served in the military.
What fuels you?
Service above self is what truly drives me. Making a difference in my community and helping others, is what makes me feel like I’ve truly accomplished something meaningful and gives purpose to my life.
What is your area of expertise?
My background is in Spanish, history, and education, with my Master’s degree in secondary education. I spent almost 8 years as a middle school teacher and I am skilled at motivating and making connections with others.
What do you do to relax?
I enjoy working out most days of the week doing CrossFit, running, and now I’ve added rock climbing to my list. I don’t have much time to relax but when I do, I enjoy traveling, hiking, gardening, DIY projects, reading, arts and crafts, and watching my boys play tennis and baseball.
With whom and where do you live?
I live in Trophy Club, Texas with my two boys and my 20-year-old cat.
Who is your role model?
My family is my role model. My grandfather, or my “papa” as I called him, and my dad both had an amazing work ethic and worked until the job was done and done right, loving what they did, which I have adopted as well. I also aspire to be like my mother with her ability to persevere and push through despite the challenges faced. And my step-mom taught me the value of service above self, always putting others’ needs in front of her own, which I myself strive to do each day.
