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!

  • 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 […]

  • Fall the peak of allergy season for some

    GREENSBORO, N.C. — For many people, with fall comes fall allergies. Ragweed, the most common fall allergen, is in full swing. In North Carolina, doctors say allergies can be particularly prevalent, because of the abundance of plant life and mild temperatures. Dr. Jose Bardelas, a Greensboro-based allergist, says, for many people, over-the-counter remedies can bring relief. “We have some over-the counter antihistamines that used to be prescription.

The pond had no fence around it and some parents are surprised that, under current law, there doesn’t have to be one.

  • Greensboro preps for ‘Big Sweep’ litter cleanup

    GREENSBORO, N.C. — Greensboro resident Mark Kolada says you’d never believe how much litter there is around Greensboro until you get out and see it for yourself. “You don’t think there’s a lot of litter on the ground but once you start walking around, you pick up a lot of trash, particularly around streams,” he says.
