Sarah was born and raised in Southern California. At the age of twelve, she started an intensive program for the study of classical ballet. After a career-ending injury at 18, Sarah began pursuing a career in fashion and events.

Sarah attended the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, where she interned for Rachelle Hruska MacPherson and Cameron Winklevoss (Guest of a Guest), and couture fashion designer Tiffany Koury.  She graduated at the top of her class with degrees in both Fashion Merchandising and Fabric Styling.

Sarah then broadened her experience with work as an assistant for wallpaper designer Aimee Wilder and Dichter Law, and project manager Pulp Lab and Greenwich Media. In addition, she has assisted in installation projects alongside sculptor Michael Murphy.
