My name is Sarah White and I am a candidate for Delegate in Virginia's 53rd district. My husband, Bryan, and I live in Falls Church. Having grown up in a small town in West Virginia, I love the closeness here in Falls Church where it is easy to get to know your neighbors. We have two cats, but as a huge animal lover I enjoy any opportunity to play with our neighbors dogs. I am a huge hockey fan, love travel, and really enjoy meeting new people.
I have worked in the service industry for most of my career. Having started as a server and host, I have done everything in a restaurant from front to back, culminating in my current position as Chief Operations Officer for YHR Holdings.
You may know the restaurants I work with- The Cowboy Cafe and the Lost Dog Cafe locations in South Arlington, McLean, and Dunn Loring. I have also branched out this year with my own company to help restaurants that are struggling due to COVID so that we can keep them open and set them up for success as we come out of this pandemic.
Part of meeting new people has been joining many local groups here in the DMV. I am a member of the Fairfax County Republican Committee, National Association of Women Business owners where I serve on the policy board, I am President of the Virginia Restaurant Lodging and Travel Association for Arlington and Alexandria, Member of the Daughters of the American Revolution, member of Tyson's Chamber of Commerce, an Ambassador for the Central Fairfax Chamber of Commerce, member of DCFempreneur, on the policy board for Arlington Chamber of Commerce, member of the Dulles Chamber of Commerce, on the board for Visit Fairfax, and a proud Rotarian with Fairfax Rotary Club.
