Sarah received her MFA in Acting from Yale School of Drama in 1994. She has joined the U of M faculty as a Assistant Professor of Theatre where she's currently teaching various levels of Acting and Audition Preparation.

Having grown up in a theatre family in the thick of tinsel town (L.A.) Sarah has been an active member of Actor's Equity and Screen Actors' Guild, appearing in New York and regional theatre as well as film and television, since she was 7 years old. Sarah has authored 2 plays with music that have been published by Samuel French, Inc., and was awarded a Fox Foundation Fellowship by nomination of the Yale Drama Faculty to develop her special skills as a producer/ performer of her dark and highly satirical plays and one-person shows.

Sarah's plays, published and unpublished, have been performed or presented by invitation in New York at the NY Theatre Workshop, The Public Theatre, The American Place Theatre, The American Jewish Theatre and the Miranda Theatre Company. She has also performed her one-person shows at venues in L.A. and abroad in Edinburgh, Glasgow and London - and by invitation regionally at such theatres as The Alley in Houston Texas.  

Sarah has taught acting at Cornell University as part of a Guest Artist Program through Equity where she also contributed her skills as an actor on their main stage. In May of 2006, just prior to her appointment as Assistant Professor of Theatre at University of Louisiana at Lafayette, Sarah's satirical play about artistic censorship during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I was produced in London at Theatre 503 by the Practicum Theatre Company. Sarah is a published songwriter, a member of ASCAP, AFTRA and The Dramatists Guild of America.
