Sarah's gymnastics career began when she was three years old after she attended a birthday party at NW Kids Sports Complex. At the party, she didn’t want to stop climbing the rock wall in the preschool gymnastics room. A coach saw her and encouraged her parents to have her try a preschool gym class. As a child, to help pass time, she would often practice handstands. Her most famous phrase was “mom, hold my feet” as she was getting into a handstand.
Sarah likes to spend time with family, especially her brothers and cousins, Wyatt and Morgan. She also loves to read, bake, and babysit. Sarah attends Tuloso Midway High School and she will graduate in 2018. Sarah is interested in going into the medical field.
