She’s anchored and reported for a number of stations, including in Iowa, South Carolina and now at FOX 9 in the Twin Cities. Her work has also taken her to NBC's Weekend Today Show and MSNBC as a producer, to South Africa as a field producer. Sarah grew up in Ohio, before heading east to New York University, where she majored in Journalism.
Sarah has covered stories ranging from sex trafficking in Iowa, to hurricane damage along the coast of South Carolina. She has also been involved in political reporting, including the Iowa Caucuses and the several presidential debates in South Carolina. She’s interviewed many presidential candidates one-on-one, including then-President Barack Obama in 2012 and President Donald Trump in 2016 prior to his election.
Sarah has been a Type 1 diabetic since she was 11, and has been involved in JDRF over the years and their work to find better therapies and hopefully a cure for T1D.
