Sal is a Senior Associate with the U.S. Program at Americares. He is responsible for the management of medicines and medical supplies available for donation to the U.S. partner network. In addition, he also handles internal and external program reporting, partner outreach and program expansion initiatives.

Before joining Americares full time, Sal interned on both the U.S. and Emergency Response Programs. He facilitated and led an Alternative Spring Break Program in New Orleans, LA for his four years in college which sparked his interest in disasters and their effects on people and communities. Influenced by those experiences, his senior thesis focused on the changing conceptions of natural and man-made disasters through U.S. history. He earned his Bachelor’s of Arts in Political Science and History from Hampshire College.
