About Me

I was 6 years old when the passion for writing consumed me. I picked up a Bic pen and wrote in slanted hand writing:

“My name is Sara.

I love strawberries, and summer.

I love green grass after it’s been mowed.

Hello.”

This poem was the gateway into a lifetime of words. Writing keeps me sane and gives me an outlet, and I will never let it go.

Much later in life, I discovered my passion for fitness, and health. The woman who once touted, “I hate running” now has two full marathons and a handful of other races under her belt. It’s important to me to live in a healthy way. I’m in no way perfect, and will always enjoy my ice cream cravings and honey walnut chicken from the local Chinese restaurant. What’s changed- I have a better understanding on how to balance my life, and how to showcase healthy living for my family and loved ones. 

I’m working on a novel. I’m working on my health. I’m working on becoming a stronger, more serene Sara, and writing and fitness are  key for me. 

Thank you for taking the time to read what I have to offer- for sharing in my passions, for putting up with me at times, and I hope in many ways I’ve been able to share something with you. 

My biggest supporters- my husband and our two boys

  1. Hi, I read your story on lymph nodes. I am going thru this right now. So scared, getting a CT scan next week. I google too and it just freaks me out! 😦

  2. I just read your lymph node story. Thank you so much for sharing . I can’t tell you how much comfort it gave me. I have suffered from anxiety for years . I am finally beginning to understand the whole “quit looking up things on the internet.” It doesn’t help and just causes MORE stress and anxiety!

    1. I am so glad to hear that. I still find myself Googling things when I shouldn’t, but like you said, it causes more stress and anxiety, making me feel even worse! Thank you so much for commenting. 🙂

  3. I just read your story on swollen lymph nodes. Thank you so much for posting this. I have had a small (not even pea sized) one for two months on the back of my neck with not really any other symptoms. 3 doctors have told me there is no clinical significance. I love the part about them calling them “Dinky.” And I totally appreciate your breakdown about Bev after that check-up. Thank you again for posting. I need to get off the internet!!
