Born and raised in Arnold, Missouri, Sarah received a Bachelors of Arts in Psychology and Political Scientist from Saint Louis University where she graduated with honors, where she was actively involved with her sorority, Alpha Delta Pi. Sarah was also a member of Phi Alpha Delta Pre-Law Fraternity and Psi Chi Psychology Honor Society. She received her law degree from Saint Louis University School of Law, where she focused on Civil Litigation. While in Law School, Sarah interned at the St. Louis City Family Court—Juvenile Division, where she assisted attorneys in child abuse and neglect cases and also interned with Catholic Legal Assistance Ministries. These experiences in law school are where Sarah decided she wanted to focus her law practice primarily on domestic litigation.
“I wanted to practice in an area where I can help make a positive difference in someone’s life. I love my work, even though it is sometimes difficult to see the stress and strain that families endure in legal proceedings. I strive to keep the legal process as painless and cost effective as possible while keeping my clients involved and informed throughout the process.”
Sarah not only understands the practice of law from a professional point of view, but also from a personal. Sarah adopted her son in 2016. Sarah spends her free time with her two children, Brayden and Ella and their two dogs, Atticus and Cane.
