A proud native New Yorker, Sara was a competitive gymnast before attending the Ohio State University and receiving her BFA in dance performance. Deeply fascinated by people and their stories, Sara put her talent for asking heartfelt, discerning questions to use in her careers as a fitness professional, documentary filmmaker, and teacher of the Alexander Technique.
After a devastating loss in 2011, Sara discovered the healing potential of co-created spaces in which the unsayable can be said. Her passion for connecting with others and her interest in the transformative power of the therapeutic relationship led her to pursue a master’s degree in clinical social work at New York University. Sara has worked with bereaved parents through the Pregnancy Loss Support Program and has cared for residents in a nursing home setting where many individuals struggled with depression, anxiety, disability, and life transitions.
