Sarah joined the Fox 8 News team in June 2014. She's a general assignment reporter who also shoots, writes and edits her own stories.

She comes to the Triad after two years living in New York City and reporting for the cable news channel there, News 12 The Bronx.

Sarah is originally from New Braunfels, Texas, although she spent much of her childhood living in Africa and England. Living overseas and seeing the positive impact journalism can have is what inspired her to choose TV news as a career.

Sarah is thrilled to be in North Carolina and feels right at home -- she graduated cum laude from Duke University in 2012, with a double major in Spanish and International Studies.

When she's not working, Sarah loves to cook vegetarian meals (she's been meat-free since age four), enjoy NC's beautiful mountains and beaches, and plan her wedding to a Greensboro native -- coming up in May 2015! She also volunteers as an alumni interviewer for her alma mater.

She's excited to be back in the south and add one more Duke fan to the Triad. If you see her out and about, please stop and say hello!

On Thursday, Sonic restaurants nationwide had a deal where they sold corn dogs for 50 cents each.
