About Sarah

“My first paid job, other than babysitting, was corn detasseling for a farmer who lived a half-mile from my home. I was 13-years-old, and most of the kids quit within the first two weeks. I made it all summer, and earned $300–which was a ton of money for me. We went on a family vacation, and I was able to buy my own things that I wanted. Early on, I learned the value of hard work and have carried that mindset with me in my personal and professional life. My family and I live on a hobby farm and raise thoroughbred horses that we race at Canterbury Park. We are active in 4H activities and have a rabbit, a dog, barn cats and horses. In addition, I  have entered and completed 7 full marathons–Grandma’s Marathon three times, Lake Wobegon Marathon once, Twin Cities Marathon twice, and the Whistle Stop Marathon once. I have also entered and completed numerous half marathons.”

Sarah received her Bachelor of Arts degree from Pepperdine University in Malibu, California. After a career in sales and marketing, she attended Hamline University School of Law in St. Paul, Minnesota, and obtained her Juris Doctorate and a Certificate in Advocacy and Problem-Solving at Hamline’s top-ranked Dispute Resolution Institute. At Pepperdine, Sarah was honored to be selected as the commencement speaker for graduation. There she was also inducted into the Phi Theta Alpha history honor society. She was on the Dean’s List twice at Hamline University School of Law.
