As a way to cope with the sudden death of her husband in 2017, Sarah authored a blog titled, “My Life in a Snow Globe” which has over 20,000 views. The blog talks about navigating life after loss and the power of resilience. Her passion is advocating for others and helping them find their voice.
Becoming Ms. American Scholar is such a proud title for Sarah because she firmly believes in all that B.R.A.V.E. stands for. Growing up she experienced bullying that led to eating disorders and thoughts of self-harm. When her child experienced bullying it became her mission that each person embrace what makes each of us unique and stop bullying. One voice can start change, together we can make it happen.
