Sarah spent her life leading up to college in Oviedo, Florida, a little city right outside of Orlando known for the wild chickens that roam the downtown area and the “I brake for Oviedo chickens” bumper stickers. Despite being from the Orlando area with many world-class attractions, some of her biggest fears include rollercoasters and large crowds.

She decided to go to THE Florida State University for college to pursue a major in journalism, only to find out at orientation that there was no journalism major at FSU. In distress and haste, she went with a major in Information, Communications, & Technology and ended up finding it fairly interesting and graduated with it in 2017 with minors in English and Italian.

Sarah joined the Catholic Student Union at FSU as a shy little freshman and immediately found a home with the other students there who allowed her to foster a growing relationship with Christ. After many small conversions and spiritual guidance along the way, she felt the Lord ask her to be bold and step out of her comfort zone to use the gifts that He gave her to build up His Kingdom to serve with SPO.

Sarah's idea of a perfect weekend includes hammocking while indulging in either British literature, any or all BCC shows on Netflix, or just staring at nature a safe distance off the ground from all of the bugs. She is very excited to serve alongside some incredible teammates at the University of Minnesota and embark on an adventure with Christ into the Minnesota winters.
