Sarah Amatruto


Head Resident

Sarah Amatruto is a Head Resident at Vermont State University, and has been located at the Randolph Campus since 2022.

Originally from New Jersey, she grew up in Bennington County, Vermont. She left Vermont to attend Canisius University in Buffalo, NY, where she double majored in Environmental Studies and Animal Behavior, Ecology, and Conservation and minored in Anthrozoology and Sociology. Between studying cats, bats, and marine mammals, she worked as a Resident Assistant and as a student assistant in the academic affairs office, discovering a love demystifying collegiate procedures for fellow students.

After graduating college, she spent a year working for the Army Corps of Engineers in Seattle, WA, and then spent time in Colorado training service dogs. At that point,the COVID-19 pandemic changed her plans and sent her back to Vermont, where she was finally able to fully combine her passions: by day she works for the Agency of Natural Resources, but by night she returns to the Randolph campus and participates in the nightly on-call rotation.

In her free time, Sarah enjoys live music, live theater, and trying to visit every town in Vermont with her partner, Koda.
