Meet Sarah

    There’s no short story as to how I got to where am I am today. I was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland {no my life was not like The Wire, yes I do most often call people “hon”, and yes, I do love the Ravens}. I went to college in upstate New York where I played field hockey and studied architecture, however I quickly realized that I love fashion and design, fitness, and plant-based food and nutrition. Today that seems like the a triple threat, but back then, I was “all over the place” as someone once told me.

    I spent the next 3 years after college exploring different careers within my passions; design assistant in Manhattan, culinary school at Living Light Culinary Art Institute in California where I graduated as an Associate Chef and Instructor, manager at a luxury boutique while working as a personal chef in Baltimore, but ultimately I decided I was going to move out west and enroll in Bastyr’s post-baccalaureate program for Naturopathic Medicine.

    I was convinced that I was going to be a Naturopathic Doctor. I loved helping people, hearing peoples stories and having an impact on someone else’s life. But after getting into the graduate program, deferring, getting accepted again, and deferring…again, I knew I wasn’t 100% committed to the profession. I wasn’t ready to leave fashion behind and fully dedicate my life to medicine.”Your purpose does not have anything to do with what you do, but rather the state of being that you carry with you in everything that you do.”

    I decided to get back into buying {the other side of fashion that I had always been fascinated by} and eventually found myself in Portland, eating great food, working in sport and fashion at adidas. After several years of living the corporate life though, I yearned for something else, something that was all my own and in 2019 I left adidas to pursue life as a creative full-time.
