As a child, Sara was very shy and reserved, but always found comfort in the company of animals. No matter what age, she would always find one stray animal after another to bring home — much to her parents or roommates dismay. So they gave in, and now she has two fur babies.
In the summer prior to her sophomore year in high school, Sara stepped out of her comfort zone and made her stage debut in Eugene O’Neill’s Ah, Wilderness as Mildred at the Ritz Theatre in Brunswick, Ga. After her debut, she knew the stage is where she wanted to be, so she joined the GA Players at Glynn Academy for the duration of her high school career.
Sara attended Georgia Southwestern State University in Americus, Georgia, where she majored in Theatre, Communications and Media Arts with an emphasis in Performance, while minoring in 3-D Art, specifically in glassblowing. She also found the time to serve as the President of the university’s Alpha Psi Omega National Theatre Honors society, Alpha Nu chapter, and interned at the Rylander Theatre in downtown Americus. Some of her favorite characters she portrayed during college include Abigail Williams in The Crucible, Catherine in Proof, the Nurse in William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, and her senior capstone Adriana in The Comedy of Errors.
After graduating, Sara moved to Charleston, South Carolina for a brief period where she performed in the original production,The Legends of Champagne written by Sarah J. Halstead at the American Theatre.
Shortly afterwards, Sara joined Vertigo in June, 2015. “If the south had won the war, the company would be located down there,” she says.
Outside of work, her hobbies include animals, crafting, traveling and basically anything outside.
