Sarah's passion for caring for others led her to pursue a career as a Neonatal Nurse Practitioner. She dedicated her life to ensuring the well-being of countless high-risk mothers and babies. Following her graduation from the University of Tennessee-Knoxville with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing in 2005, Sarah began her nursing journey at Le Bonheur Children's Hospital in Memphis. Her commitment to providing the best care led her to pursue a Master’s degree in her field from UAB. As a NICU NP, she continued her work at Children’s Hospital in Chattanooga, The Children’s Hospital at Tri-Star Centennial and most recently at Vanderbilt’s Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital. She has also served as a transport flight nurse.

Sarah cherished spending time with her family and enjoyed cooking delicious meals for them. Her chocolate chip cookies were particularly loved by everyone fortunate enough to have tried them.
As an involved mother, Sarah took great joy in being present in her children's lives and ensuring their happiness and success. Despite a busy work schedule she found time to work with her son Jake’s class on crafts and field trips, and to cheer him and his team mates on at soccer and cross-country race activities. Her children were the center of her universe.
In addition to her professional achievements and role as a nurturing mother, Sarah had a deep appreciation for nature and used every opportunity to teach her children the importance of caring for God's creations.
