Sarah grew up in Park City, Utah, which filled her with a love of the outdoors. She attended the University of Utah for her bachelor’s degree in medical anthropology. She spent her early career working in the U.S. and Africa as a health policy advocate, educator, community developer, activist and researcher. The time Sarah spent in Africa working with World Vision, the Peace Corps and UNICEF showed her the strength women possess, as well as the pain of loss and what it means to care for women. After returning to the U.S., Sarah received a Helene Fuld Health Trust Scholarship to complete her bachelor’s degree in nursing at Oregon Health & Science University, where she also received her master’s degree in nurse-midwifery.
Sarah considers it an honor to care for women, and she enjoys working with women and their families throughout the lifespan. She appreciates the tangible difference that can be made in the lives of women by providing support during pregnancy and promoting health at every stage of life. Her clinical interests include promoting physiological birth through evidence-based practice.
Sarah has served on the board of the Zimbabwe Artist Project and SeneGAD, an organization focused on gender and development in Senegal. When she’s not working or volunteering, she enjoys skiing, biking, hiking, camping and spending time with her husband and darling son.
