Born and raised in New Jersey, Sarah graduated with a BFA in Drama from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. She then spent a year and a half touring the United States as “Ado Annie” in the original cast of Cameron Macintosh’s acclaimed revival of Oklahoma! Since then, she has been incredibly fortunate to continually work in regional theaters across the United States, playing roles such as “Eponine” in Les Misérables, “Jo” in Little Women, “Nellie” in South Pacific, “Belle” in Beauty & the Beast, and many more. Most recently, Sarah was seen touring the United States once again in the original cast of the 25th Anniversary Production of Les Misérables.

Currently, Sarah serves as the Associate Artistic Director of The Active Theater in New York City, and has shifted her focus to the “other side of the table” (so to speak). At the moment, she is spending a year in Australia as a dialect coach and teaching masterclasses in “Acting Through Song” at several performing arts schools across the country.
