Biography

Sara L. Armstrong was born in Chicago, Illinois where she attended public schools and obtained BS in Microbiology from Roosevelt University. She joined the Peace Corps in 1966 for two years of adventure and self-discovery. But after marrying a Ugandan in 1968, and deciding to live in East Africa, she was launched on a fascinating journey through the terror and chaos of Idi Amin Dada. Because she is a black American, she blended in and moved freely around the country witnessing many things that journalists and diplomats were not permitted to see. She traveled in taxis and buses, she shopped in the local markets, and she lived as ordinary Ugandans lived. This gave her a unique insight into the destruction of a prosperous and thriving nation.

After returning from Uganda, Ms. Armstrong was widowed and threw her energies into raising her two children, taking care of her aging parents and participating in local politics. She helped to incorporate and served as the first Mayor of the town of Shorter, Alabama when developers threatened her community. As the mayor of a new municipality that became the center of a public controversy, she gave numerous TV and newspaper interviews as well as chairing the city council and committee meetings.

Sara Armstrong's first book entitled The Shattered Pearl, which is an account of her ten years in Africa, was published in December 2001. She feels that her book entertains as well as educates readers. Her second book, After Me, You Come First, is a self-care guide for women and caregivers.

Ms. Armstrong is the founder and CEO of Sara L Armstrong Enterprises and its subsidiary Women of Authority that provide training and consulting services. Her passion is to help women embrace each other without reservation, enable each other by sharing skills and experiences, and empower each other to set positive goals and take action. As an author and international speaker she is uniquely equipped to provide the solutions to those challenges.

As an authority on diversity, career planning, women's leadership and empowerment, and communicating for results, Sara Armstrong's presentations are sought-after by corporations, public organizations, conferences, and learning institutions.

What sets Ms. Armstrong apart from other motivational speakers are her leadership as a mayor, international experience in the Peace Corps, six years of survival under the atrocities of Idi Amin in Uganda, and as an active participant in spiritual endeavors. She has presented to clients internationally, from corporations to non-profits, universities, and churches, including Emory University, Century 21, Microsoft, Pac Bell, Sierra Club, Los Angeles Department of Aging, Women in Need Alliance, and the YWCA.

Sara Armstrong has a Masters Degree in Religious Education. She was married to Bob Armstrong from 1992 until he passed away in 2006. Their blended family consists of nine children, sixteen grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
