Born and raised in the greater Milwaukee area, she is a cheesehead at heart, but did spend 10 years as a Hoosier after marrying Mike (a native of Indiana and Larry Bird fan). Sarah lives in the greater Milwaukee area with her husband and two children. She is active in her church and community, enjoys spontaneous mini-excursions with her family, hanging out with friends and neighbors, and taking her rescue dogs for walks.
