“My travels have exposed me to a broad spectrum of cultures and beliefs, which have taught me to be more culturally aware in my practice. Our communities are becoming more diverse, and a knowledge of languages, cultural norms, religious beliefs, and healing practices can improve how we deliver healthcare.”
Sarah was born and raised in Virginia. She met her husband while studying abroad in Australia, and together they have enjoyed traveling, working, and living abroad. They enjoy mountain biking, hiking, wine tasting, and spending time with their three children.
