Sarah became interested in dog training when she was 13 years old. She wanted to be a veterinarian and thought that in addition to training her own chickens, guinea pigs and cockatiels, training guide dogs would be great hands on experience. In 1995, that led to her first guide dog puppy, Campo, a black lab. Campo got her hooked and she ended up raising and training 5 more guide dog puppies and 7 other service dog puppies. In 2000, she made a career of training dogs and started teaching obedience classes and private lessons. In 2008 Sarah was introduced to agility, took classes with Daisy Peel and Blynn Baker and was immediately hooked. She then started teaching foundation agility classes and now teaches foundation through competition classes, private lessons and workshops at her field in Centralia, WA and also in Tumwater and Castle Rock. She occasionally teaches workshops at Argus Ranch in Auburn, WA.
Bad Dog Agility started to sponsor Sarah in 2015. Since then she has worked with them in their online Academy, in their Before and After classes and now teaches a foundation agility class through them.
