Sarah was born and raised in Michigan, and is a loyal Michigan Wolverines fan. At the age of 17, she moved to San Diego, California, on her own, seeking adventure. Sarah attended the University of California, San Diego, where she rowed on the Varsity crew team, taking second place at Nationals each year, and was named Coca Cola All American for her academic and athletic achievements combined with her community service. Sarah moved to San Francisco to attend the University of California, Hastings College of the Law, where she completed a prestigious externship with Justice Joyce Kennard of the California Supreme Court. She received her J.D. in 2012, and was admitted to practice law in the State of California in November 2012.

Sarah’s practice focuses on medical malpractice defense. She has obtained defense verdicts in multiple medical malpractice trials as both first and second chair. Sarah is a Court Appointed Special Advocate for a foster youth, and volunteers as a coach for moot court competition teams for both University of California, Davis and UC Hastings, Colleges of the Law, including coaching Regional Champions and National Finalists in the prestigious NAAC competition. When she is not working, Sarah is often spending time with friends and family, fostering for a local dog rescue, or watching Michigan football.
