Outside the office

Born and raised in the Midwest, Sarah has traded in her views of rolling corn fields for the vast topography of the Mountain West. She has spent her years here in the mountains dabbling in the many seasonal activities Utah has to offer. Through the spring, summer, and fall, you can find her backpacking through the Uintah’s, pounding dirt on Wasatch trails, or trying her hand at fly fishing, climbing, rafting, and mountain biking. Sarah spends her winter months out on the slopes striving to reach her dream of being an intermediate snowboarder, as well as tromping around the snowy trails with her dog, Naapi.
