Sarah is a native Michigander with a background in marketing, promotions, tech consulting/sales. She earned her bachelor's degree from Central Michigan University and spent half of her career working in the academic publishing industry, specifically with public and state libraries. She then moved to the agency world, supporting marketing and promotion efforts for large brands like Coca-Cola and Samsung, and more recently helping companies support their employee relations with integrated software and technology tools.


Sarah and her husband, Dan, became parents to their son, August (4), in 2019 and their daughter, Halle (3), in 2020. They received Halle's diagnosis of Down syndrome prenatally, and were introduced to the incredible world of disability parenting after Halle's birth in December 2020. Sarah hit pause on her corporate career to care for Halle and focus on her mental health in 2022. Sarah was one of Extra Lucky Moms' first followers and has been engrained in the community ever since. She joined the ELM team in September 2023. In her spare time, you can find Sarah enjoying an active life with her young family, like kayaking, hiking, biking, taking casual walks with the kids and traveling around Michigan.
