Sarah Geers

Staff Attorney

Sarah was raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and developed a great appreciation for Wisconsin’s beautiful natural resources by paddling, hiking and camping around the state. Sarah earned bachelor degrees in Conservation and Environmental Science, and Spanish from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and a law degree from the University of Wisconsin Law School. During law school, she worked with a law firm in Traverse City, MI, and Earthjustice’s office in Denver, CO. Sarah also interned with MEA and the Wisconsin Department of Justice Environmental Protection Unit.  Before becoming a staff attorney at Midwest Environmental Advocates, Sarah clerked for Justice N. Patrick Crooks on the Wisconsin Supreme Court. 

In her spare time Sarah enjoys spending time outdoors backpacking, climbing, kayaking, and walking her two dogs.  She also volunteers for the Dane County Humane Society.
