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!

  • Historic pedestrian tunnel in Greensboro revitalized

    GREENSBORO, N.C. — A pedestrian tunnel in Greensboro’s historic Aycock neighborhood was not sending the message locals wanted about their community. “It’s been a lot of things,” said Aycock resident Bert Vanderveen. “It’s been a scary dark tunnel, it’s been a bright tunnel that’s just utilitarian, it’s been covered in graffiti.” So locals got together and secured Municipal Service District funds to change that. “We changed our thinking,” said Aycock resident Betsey Horth. “What if we made [the tunnel] a […]

  • WFU law expert predicts NC ban on gay marriage will be overturned

    Voters in Virginia, like those in North Carolina, passed a constitutional amendment that banned same-sex marriage. However, in July, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit (which includes both Virginia and North Carolina) overturned Virginia’s law, claiming it was unconstitutional to place gender restrictions on marriage. That decision was then appealed and taken to the U.S. Supreme Court. Yesterday, the U.S. Supreme Court declined to take up the case. This means that the previous decision, that Virginia’s ban […]

    As the number of people infected with Ebola in Liberia grows, Liberians in the Piedmont are increasingly worried about the virus.

Peggy Ferebee, a Summerville resident who travels the country playing “polocrosse” — lacrosse on horseback — says this is a threat she and her horse-riding friends encounter often. “We’re running into more cases of places where we used to ride being closed off, being developed,” she said.
