Sarah was born and raised in Boise, and proud to call Idaho home. She studied political science and history in Olympia, WA, and Japanese language and culture in Nishinomiya, Japan. She spent the early 2000s as a writer and researcher for a small think tank, taught ESL in Japan, and returned to Idaho in 2006. Sarah cooked professionally for nearly 10 years, specializing in event catering and wine-food pairing, driven by a desire to provide warm, sincere hospitality.
In her spare time, Sarah enjoys walking the Greenbelt, gardening, amassing trivia, and exploring whichever bit of the world she's in at the moment.
